Blueberries, finally!

It's the end of June, and finally we have the first ripe blueberries ready to pick! This has been a slower season than most. We usually start getting berries two weeks earlier than this.

Just turning ripe.
 Blueberries are a nutritional superfood, loaded with vitamins and antioxidants. Plus they are just delicious! We're very fortunate to live in a rental house that had these bushes established when we moved in. No work has been required on our part, and we get loads of these beautiful berries every summer!

Now I'm off to try to make a deep-dish blueberry pie. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. There's nothing in the world any better than fresh summer fruits!


  1. Lucky you with your blueberry crop, I'd love to grow them. However we do have red currants, but it's hardly the same thing!

    1. Red currants sound delicious! I'll bet they make excellent jam!
