Along with several other fruits, I have found a love for blueberries this year. I'm eating them right now in my whole grain cereal. They are a little soft, I'm thinking that's because I froze them? I'm still learning, but I think I read somewhere you don't freeze blueberries. If you know, let me know.
I was in the home improvement store yesterday and looked at the blueberry plant/bush/tree --- what do you call it? My first thought - it won't live in my yard. As I'm savoriing these delicious berries, I'm seriously considering going back and purchasing one of those bushes. After all, it wouldn't be in my local store if it weren't appropriate for this region. Another reason I didn't purchase the blueberry plant was because I already had an unpriced lemon tree in my cart. Unfortunately I had to leave the lemon tree, which rang up at $40, at the register and decided I would look for it at the flea market.
Do any of you grow blueberries? What is your experience? I want to be able to show my harvest to you, my Sparkfriends, in the future.
