I'm picking my blueberries.  Hindsight is 20/20.  I should not have planted the bushes so close to the fence.  It might not have mattered as much except that they're on the north side of the fence and grow toward the sun, i.e. the neighbor's side.  I also shouldn't have let them get so tall.  I'm climbing a ladder to reach the berries.

A picture paints a thousand words:

  1. This is Sherry's fruit. She loves them plus the additional health benefits she touts. They are okay raw, but I prefer them in a pie of smoothie. As a matter of fact I made an apple, prune, peach and Blueberry smoothie for breakfast. The blue berry being the most prevalent flavor.

    But wow you do have a harvest. I wonder how they do the BB commercially. Do they shake the bushes? Our friends in Maine 'rake' wild blueberries, I guess that is not possible on TALL erect bushes. amazing your bushes are that high. Sis Shirls are a few years old and still about 3' tall.

    But they do look good. Love from New York.
