fresh picked

posted in: gardening, Life | 0

Blueberries! My favorite food of all time. We are big blueberry eaters here, all year long (frozen organic for most of the year), so nothing beats the treat of having an abundance of fresh picked. Straight up, in smoothies, with a drizzle of half and half, on top of my oatmeal, in a glass of wine, whichever way – I like them raw and fresh. I usually can’t bring myself to cook with them or can them and while the idea was to pick enough to freeze, I think 13 quarts will be gone in no time. Yum! We might have to go a few more times before the season here is up.

The owner of the farm gave us a couple of cuttings, and we are trying some experimental propagation. If we had a 100% success rate, we should have a dozen little bushes next year. But I’d be happy with even just a few. I am learning how easy this kind of propagation is, and we are super excited about it. I’ll try to report any notable successes and failures here, in case any of you are interested.

    I have taken cuttings from blueberry plants, but didn’t have any luck propogating them. Let me know if you have any luck! I want to plant blueberries EVERYWHERE!! 🙂

    Do you have a farm you love to pick at? We have a few, but I always love to find more local farms. 🙂

    The pictures you take are always so beautiful.
