Blueberry Hills Forever

Near neighbours John and Lesley from Cherry Top Farmstay, Lilydale picked their organic blueberries on Sunday for yesterday's hilbarn boxes. Escorted by Tab Tab the very handsome cat, John gave us a mini tour of the south facing orchard; its cooler climes, he says, are essential for blueberry fruit formation. Their hazelnuts will be ready in a year or two. "No point hurrying anything," says John. "What's the point of eating healthily if you're not living healthily too!" Well, there's a lot to be said for that!
