I just came in from picking about a quart of blueberries from our little patch out back and thought I’d share a few photos with you. I’ll be making another batch of blueberry jam once the heat clears…it’s one of my favorite things to do!
We had a great crop this year and last year, too. I started bedding them down with pine needles (from my mom’s yard) each fall and I think it makes a difference. Blueberries like acidic soil and the proof is in the pudding, as they say.
Berry-laden branches make it so easy to pick.
It’s just like picking a bunch of grapes!
These are the smaller berries. But my favorites….
…are the ginormous ones.
These guys snuck in years ago; they just happen to be one of my husband’s favorites.
Job well done, if I may say so myself. :)
