There's good news for blueberry lovers in Central Georgia. Bolingbroke Blueberries in Monroe County has a surplus of the fruit this season, after a tough year last year.

Owner Ted Wach says in 2009, the company only collected about two gallons of blueberries because of a cold freeze.

But this year with all the rain and sunshine, he says he's seen an increase in the crop compared to previous years.

Wach says he has about 20 to 30 percent more blueberries.

"This is the best crop we have ever had. There is a tremendous growth on every tree that is over here and we're very well pleased with it," says Wach.

Bolingbroke Blueberries is open anyone who would like to come out and pick some blueberries this season, which began earlier this month.

They are open Monday to Saturday 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.
