I Heart Blueberries

One thing I miss about living back in the states is the U-picks. We used to go pick apple, peach, cherries, strawberries, and my all time favorite, blueberries!

But I've found the U-pick system here in Japan is expensive and most have a time limit to how long we can pick. That's no fun. So when I started a veranda garden last year, I really wanted a blueberry plant, but the season was over before I knew it.

So I'd been sniffing around for a blueberry plant this year and I finally found my blueberry plant! Can't wait to eat fresh blueberries!

I ♥ blueberries too. It looks like you have a pretty good crop coming in. I just saw this “inexpensive way to increase your crop.”

I know a guy who has pick-and-eat blueberries in Nagano Prefecture, but, as you say, it could be expensive. You could check it out here anyway if you are in that neighborhood.

When the time comes in the near future allow me to say Bon appetite.

So, this a blueberry plant looks like. Just between the two of us, I'm good at making blueberry cheesecake. Send them when they're ready, I'll send the cake to you ;).
