First this year

I have anxiously been waiting for my blueberries to ripen. This year the bushes were laden with fruit but they are quite fragile and the wind, ably assisted by the birds, seems to have been knocking the fruit to the ground. Not having sufficient sun has also been a major problem, however yesterday I managed to find enough to make a meal. Some could have been a little riper but I couldn't wait any longer!

I love blueberry pie, and it is probably being sold at roadside stands out in the country these days. Alas, I am not in the country. Sigh.

Amrita I'd never heard of "falsa" so I had to google it to find out more. They do look similar.

I've been buying blueberries by the bushels this year.

The ones I was chowing down tonight were bigger than my thumb. They were huge. They were from Canada.

How fabulous to grow your own blueberries.
Enjoyed your photos of China.

Have fun with Sam and Beccy.

Trish they take a while for the bushes to establish but are well worth it. There are lots of different varieties so choose carefully.

Pamela compared to your purchases mine are a meagre few. I remember seeing them growing when we were in Canada. We actually brought home a lot dried (made suitcases very heavy!)

Barbara we have such a lot planned it's difficult to fit everything in.
