Blueberries for Me

May Stuff 10 020
I am so excited I can't stand it! I have my very OWN blueberry bushes. I have always wanted them but never thought I would get to have them. Last fall a blueberry farm near us when out of business and sold off all their mature bushes for $10 each. I got myself 6 lovely bushes. I am so happy. I would have bought more but these weighed a ton and were hard to get home. I can't wait till June when they are ripe.

I LOVE BLUEBERRIES!!! I have a good friend from MI that just happens to have a LARGE family owned blueberry farm. Last year I brought home 20lbs and that wasn't nearly enough..lol. This year she brought me 10 plants that we just got in the ground last week! Some have a few blueberries on them, but not nearly enough to suit me! Calling ourselves 'Blueberry Farmer's' now ;0) Blueberry bushes in IL are scarce and I'm not sure how I feel about sharing...lol. Good luck...those look wonderful. Feel free to share any good blueberry recipes you stumble across in your many ways to use them. They make WONDERFUL jam!
