I have always liked berries, strawberries, blackberries, marionberries, raspberries and this year I am really into blueberries. About a week ago I went to the local farm store and bought two bushes. My nephew had gotten some Legacy bushes so I followed his lead as there were a lot of different varieties to choose from.  

I’m not sure why I have all of sudden acquired such a craving for these berries but in reading about the them, I’m thinking maybe my body is telling me they are good for me.  

I had always thought they grew in bogs but a number of neighbors have them here. In fact, the neighbor next door invited me over to pick some. His bushes were loaded with delicious fruit.

Blueberries don’t seem to require a lot of maintenance. Before they were cultivated, they grew wild and are native to North America. Native Americans were the first to recognize their versatility and health benefits.  If you google ‘blueberries’ there is a lot of information about the health benefits of including them in your diet. 

There are a lot of blueberry recipes. I love them over Greek yogurt and do about half/half. Half Blueberries of course. I also love them in summer salads.   Hopefully I’ll get some pictures of my bushes with fruit next year. I’m looking forward to it. 

Happy Summer!!!!

  1. We use blueberries every morning on our oatmeal. Yum!

  2. I hope these have fruit next year. Good and good for you. Huh!

  3. I love blueberries too, in fact love most berries. Usually have mine for breakfast over my yogurt. I also love them in muffins to. Yum. 🙂

  4. I am also a huge fan of blueberries. They are yummy. I like to put them in my iced tea as well. They add a subtle flavor. Glad you got two bushes as they have to cross pollinate. I didn’t know that when I bought one and it never did a thing. LOL. A little town in Alabama about 30 mins from me has a blueberry festival every year (not since Covid) and they serve all kinds of delicious goodies like ice cream and crumble, YUM!

  5. Never thought of putting blueberries in iced tea. It’s nice to really like something that’s good for you. 🙂
