Easton Family Enjoys Blueberry Patch

EASTON, Conn. — Ross West, a Joel Barlow High School student, led a mile-long expedition on the trails through the Aspetuck Land Trust 's hiking trails at Trout Brook Valley near Route 58 on Tuesday. He was joined by his cousin, Sarah West; Kaitlyn West, a recent Barlow graduate; and William West, 7.

After a late night of celebrating Kaitlyn's graduation with five family members in town from out of state, the group took the hike to find out how the blueberry bushes were doing. The berries are almost ready, and they found plenty to eat and enjoy on the spot and enough to bring home to meet our "no pigs" limit. A sign reminds hikers to remove only two quarts of the yummy blueberries and gently asks us all to donate to the Aspetuck Land Trust to help care for and provide for the future of the blueberry patch.

The blueberry patch, owned by the Aspetuck Land Trust, speaks volumes about the health and wellness of Easton. The berries only go to those who make the healthy trek in, and it is a healthy treat to replenish the lost fluids spent to get there.

Thank you Easton and thank you Aspetuck Land Trust for the new trails so we don't have to walk down those long wood planks anymore.

Tim West is an Easton resident and father of four.
