    This year my garden is totally drowned, I'm happy my blueberry bushes
    haven't died.

    Beautiful berries! Are you going to eat those as is or are muffins or
    pancakes in your near future?? Did your bushes produce enough for you
    to can or freeze??

    I have 12 bushes, four kinds, 3 of each, that produce early, mid season, and
    late.... I get a bowlful as pictured each day. Most I eat as is, freshly
    picked blueberries are too good to use for baking/cooking.... there is no
    comparison to store bought. Some I eat with vanilla ice cream or vanilla
    yogurt or cotage cheese. I recommend that anyone who has a sunny spot and
    they don't intend to move anytime soon that they plant as many blueberry
    bushes as they have room. Blueberries are a long lived plant, they grow
    slow and steady over many life times. My bushes are farily small so I don't
    get too many berries but each year I get more. They were seven year old
    bushes when I planted them three yrears ago. Blueberry bushes should be
    planted like five feet apart as they will become quite large in time. In
    another three years I will have to begin cooking and freezing some.
    Actually I picked enough to fully fill that bowl but they are so good that I
    eat half while picking. You should see the frustrated crows attacking my
    netting... I feel sorry for them, they look like they will have a stroke.

    Little beauties. :-)
    A sprinkling of turbinado sugar and a bit of sour cream, and I'd be good
    to go!

    Fresh picked really needs no sugar but they'd go well with sour cream.

    Amen, Amen. I picked those as a kid for our breakfast table. I got
    them in corn flakes and wheaties. Ah, the bliss!!!

    We thought ourselves near-poor, but we kids didn't know how good
    we had it,

    till later.
