Wild or lowbush blueberries are sought out for their high antioxidant and anthocyanin content. Wild blueberries are one of the best things you can eat for brain health, and they are considered a superfruit. While the wild or uncultivated berry is most commonly associated with the Downeast region in Maine, there is also substantial acreage of the wild plant in eastern New Hampshire. Historically, this was a main crop for many farmers around Lake Winnipesaukee and into the White Mountain region.

This past week my family and I went camping near Bartlett, NH. As we hiked we noticed so many grasshoppers. As we sat in the tall grasses to take a break, we viewed hundreds of "hoppers" who looked frozen in time, lifeless. Upon closer inspection, we had discovered exoskeletons, or molted bodies, of these insects. Unlike butterflies, grasshoppers go through an incomplete metamorphosis, where their bodies change gradually. Grasshoppers go through three stages in their life cycle – egg, nymph and adult.
