Muscadine Grape Picking 

That time of year has come to an end. Berry Sweet, a certified organic blueberry farm in Ethel, La., closed its 2010 you-pick-'em season earlier this month, as did most of its antioxidant-packed fellow farms. Luckily, the berries' predecessor (and rival) in summer sweetness, the muscadine grape, is a late-summer arrival, and in August, you can pick them for yourself on the Northshore's Sunhillow Berry Farm (33510 Magee-Mahner Road, Pearl River). It's a perfect fruit for homemade jellies and jams and, just like its grape cousins, wine.
