Blueberry Season is Here!!

I have my first bowl of cereal with fresh blueberries this morning! Yum!! We have approx. 20 bushes and I'm trying to beat the robins in getting the first ripe ones. I got up early at 5:30 to water and pick before it gets hot today. It was over 100 out on the river yesterday! We broke all records in Oregon as the hottest place in the state. My friend took an art class up north of us on the beach yesterday and had to keep her jacket on all day! I think we will drive to the beach this afternoon when it starts to steam up here! We are just not used to the heat and my husband was one unhappy camper last night. He was putting up fans, moaning and groaning and making it impossible to just go to sleep. Tonight I will send him out to the hammock. Sadie, our white lab, spent the night outside like any smart dog would do. This morning she was up in the orchard snoozing away when I got up. She is probably hoping that an apple or peach will fall as she loves to eat them!

My son dug up some of the "baby" blueberries from my patch to take home to grow for his family. It has only been a couple of years ago and they are already producing! This is little Wills enjoying grandma's blueberries. I'm eating my cereal right now with a hefty fist full of blueberries on it. Yum!
