The rainy beginning of the summer was a downer for most people, but those gloomy days made for a bigger, better blueberry crop today, according to Chad Reenders.

Reenders, a manager at Reenders Blueberry Farm in Grand Haven Township, said the blueberry crop this year was back up to normal after a poor yield last summer due to the heat and lack of rain.
