Blueberry Season!

This is one of my most favorite times of the year, blueberry season!  We have had a few bushes in our yard now for quite some time.  This time of year, we can't pick them fast enough and the girls can't eat them fast enough.  One is currently out of town and the other working, but both know come this weekend a blueberry feast will be taking place.  They like them plain and au natural!!!!


This was the yield from just one day of picking!   Our bushes have gotten so big that we can't even reach the top branches anymore.  Our friends the Robins love them too however.  And, we are all about sharing!

i'm so jealous you have blueberries in your back yard!! I went once with a friend when I visited her in indiana and got 8 pounds. I was so sad when they ran out!

I love blueberries! They are actually very expensive to buy over here and you only get a small carton at that!!

we just added a couple of bushes to our garden last year. They aren't really producing too much at the moment. Maybe they need more time to establish themselves. Oh well. Thanks for sharing your bounty, liz

Wow! I am so envious...we love blueberries and would really love to have them growing in our yard. Guess we will have to settle with veggies growing in our raised garden bed.

Lauren,

I am envious and impressed by your harvest! Wow! Ours aren't doing well.. probably because we have yet to have enough sunshine (feeling grumpy because of that..)

Enjoy them!

How wonderful to have your own blueberry bushes! I could eat blueberries every day! Growing up we had several blackberry bushes in our backyard and loved picking those and eating just plain or my mom would makes homemade jam and cobblers. So yummy! Enjoy your weekend Lauren!
