Worth the Wait

I thought our blueberry bushes were never going to fruit but after 4 years, here’s what they’ve decided to do! Blueberries are strange creatures. They detest lime, take a considerable time to start fruiting well and, when they do, the fruit ripens unevenly on the bush. This means careful picking is necessary as ripe berries must be harvested from a tight bunch which may still be sporting green fruit. Fresh blueberries from the garden are more tangy and flavoursome that their more bland supermarket cousins.

  1. Don’t get frostbite while you pick them. Must put on some more sun screen now.
