  1. Hey all! I just wanted to let evreyone know how helpful Blueberry Bob has been thus far. I was trying to find blueberry sprigs for a wedding cake and the wedding is this weekend. We need to travel to get to the wedding on Friday. Bob cut sprigs for me and tested them over the weekend and helped me find the perfect sprigs for the cake. I could not be more grateful and would suggest that any blueberry lovers got to the Lost Branch! Thank you so much for everything Blueberry Bob!
