Our season's first blueberries
Today we peeled back the netting and harvested our very first blueberries. We planted 3 new bushes this year. They won't produce until next year. Even with 6 bushes, I don't feel like we'll have enough, but we sure enjoy what we have. The boy's actually fought over them (we're cherishing that moment!); there weren't many berries -only 5 ounces.
We love it! It's harvest time! This gardening, homesteading, producing your own food experience, the garden, the eggs and meat, it's all such a good time; and the first blueberries today are definitely a highlight.
