I'm imagining going into the garden with my morning cereal and plucking plump blueberries off a bush and plopping them into my bowl. Blueberries on ice cream on a hot summer day sounds scrumptous too or blueberry pie. Yes, I know it is the middle of winter and even if I had blueberry bushes they would not be decorating my cereal right now, but this is one of my garden dreams.
I plan to plant some blueberry bushes this spring. I've been researching different varieties and its a bit overwhelming. I do know I want to have early, mid, and late bearing varieties. Here's my list at the moment Early: Becky blue, Bonita, Brightwell, Climax, Premier; Mid: Bluebelle, Brite blue, Chaucer, Powderblue, Tiflue; Late: Baldwin, Centurion, Choice, Delite. The only problem is that I only have room for a maximum of six bushes and realistically I should only plant four bushes. Decisions, decisions. There's an organic blueberry bush vendor at the farmer's market, so I will probably end up choosing based on what varieties they have available. Now I've got to check on when the farmer's market opens... guess I have about three months to ponder my blueberry selections.
