Blueberry Harvest

Well, last year we had a bumper crop of blueberries. In fact, if you ask anyone around they would say that there was an abundance of every type of fruit last year. My brother, Bryan, told me a few years ago that when a plant gives out so much energy that the next year they pull back and store their energy a bit.

I guess Bryan's right. This year's crop looks like it will be less fruit than we had last year. We were hoping for another bumper crop, but it seems that we'll have a short crop this year. I guess it just makes life a little sweeter when you know you have to enjoy today's bounty while it's here. The picture above is a Bluecrop variety and shows some of the pretty blues (and greens) on the plant right now.
