growing blueberries ... ♥


this is the first summer we've had blueberry bushes
my husband planted two of them last fall
and now we have a small harvest :)




they are so sweet and delicious
how nice to have fresh fruit right in our backyard :)



we want to plant raspberry bushes next :)
the hubs also built a tree swing for the girls
looking up is where he attached the rope & clasp to the tree



this is what i found at the other end of it :)



any family favorite recipes that include blueberries?
i've seen a few yummy ones on Pinterest ... 
was thinking of trying these blueberry cream cheese muffins from i am baker

  3. I have been having blueberries with my oatmeal every morning, and the bright pop of color makes me so happy! I wish mine were from my backyard and not from the store. Maybe next year...

  4. Oh my gosh...I love blueberries! It's the coolest thing to grow your own. We have relatives with a large blueberry farm and get to go pick them every so often. If you freeze them without washing them in a zip lock bag you can take a handful out at a time, run them under water and throw them on top of cereal, oatmeal, ice cream...whatever. :)

    I'm glad you're all enjoying summer! :)
