Well what do we have here?

MORE blueberries!

Went out the long weekend and there were more ripe blueberries.  You can see there are yet even more in various stages of ripening.  Woo hoo!

Not a bad harvest yet again and I will confess to eating a handful on the drive back into town, ha. These bushes (we have two) are the Austin variety and from what we've read, once established, a mature bush can produces much as TWENTY FIVE POUNDS of berries! 

We're not sure what we would do with FIFTY pounds, LOL, but I'd bet we could figure out something.

Blueberry pie...
Blueberry jam...
Blueberry muffins...
Blueberry pancakes...


  1. The Skinny Taste blog has a fantastic oatmeal blueberry muffin recipe called Insanely Good Blueberry Muffins. Try it!

  2. You can always dry freeze or do some canning of your over abundance of berries.
    Make up some blueberry sauce to put over ice cream.
    Dehydrate them for snacks.
    Fill up some ice cube trays with fruit and juice or fruit and water. Stick in the freezer until fully frozen.
    Make a cobbler, a coffee cake or cheesecake or a tart
    Make you up some Popcycles
    Make up some muffins
    Put some in jello
    Add a few to a bowl of cereal
    If nothing else, share some of your berries with your peach coworker friend.

  3. We have six bushes and rarely get more than a handful. The birds, deer and squirrels sure enjoy them though! LOL

  4. The recipe for Jordan Marsh blueberry muffins is the best! I'd make a huge batch of them. When you do start getting a lot, at least blueberries freeze very well. Enjoy!

  5. I love blueberries in a bowl and eat them like popcorn.

  6. Don't wash blueberries before freezing but after they thaw. Otherwise the skins will be very tough.

  7. Congratulations on your healthy plants and continuing harvest. They look beautiful!
