Yesterday I was able to pick a few ripe blueberries from three of my blueberry trees!! I've never been more excited! Dean came running into the house yelling "Michelle come here quick!" So I went running outside panicking that the dogs may have gotten out again; to discover that he had found riped blueberries!

We've also had lots of our wild blackberries and raspberries ripening as well and there are still tons more of those that are not riped!! I love being able to step into my yard and pick fresh deliscous no chemical sprayed fruits!! My dogs also seem to enjoy them! I first discovered that my black raspberries were ripe because I went to check what my Lab Asa was doing over by the fence and sure enough he was eating all the fresh berries he could reach!

This is our first summer in our house and we've discovered lots of berries and plants we never knew we had. Just the beginning of this month we discovered we had a 50ft cherry tree at the back of our property!! Though to get to it you have to tackle more blackberry bushes! Hopefully this will be another project later this year.
