More fun things growing in our yard

It has been fun this summer discovering all the things that are planted in our yard. There have been so many beautiful flowers! W planted two blueberry bushes in the spring, and they did get a few berries on them, but they aren't ripening very quickly...the neighbor's bushes are ripe and overproducing! We may not get to eat them this year, but we should have a good crop of them next year.

We did see the strawberry plants in the backyard, but didn't know if they would grow anything edible. I went out on Sunday evening, and there were several ripe berries! I only picked six...one for each of us, and then took some pictures. I hope we can clean up the foliage around them by next year, so we can get to them better.

Hope you got ever-bearing strawberries. I finally had dad roto-till our stupid June bearing ones up. Never got any anyway. We have a bumper crop of apricots this year but they are nasty. Have no taste. Like eating a cotton ball! I'm sad. We ate corn out of our garden tonight............it was awesome!
