my blueberry heaven

despite appearances, these are no mere twigs. these are my new project, raspberry and blueberry bushes. i envisioned joyful mouths stuffed with berry sweetness, fingers stained blue and red. pies, jams, compote, martinis. unfortunately, i have twigs. although they promise to one day yield 8 lbs of fruit each, i don't see any blueberry cobbler in my future. one day, they will be beautiful bushes and i will be able to enjoy a fresh berry smoothie as i hose technicolor bird poo off my car. one day.

a girl can dream, can't she?

I love berries! I wish I'd planted berry bushes twelve years ago when we moved in, and every year I think, "I should do that this year."

Do blueberries have seeds? My hubby and I were at Findley last weekend, and a booth had blueberries at a great price. He swears the last time we bought them they had seeds...is he mistaking them for blackberries possible? Good luck on your project!

blueberries don't normally have seeds, as far as i know. but i can tell you, i was at findlay this past weekend and there were some table grapes that look a hell of a lot like blueberries. i am not sure if they have seeds or not, but if they do, that may be what your husband is thinking of.
