Blueberries making up for lost time

Last year was a drought year in so many ways. One in particular: The blueberry bushes next to my woods were definitely closed for repairs.

Well, they seem to be making up for it this year. Although we're about three days away from being able to go pick breakfast, the bushes are laden with fat, plump berries that have managed to hang below the birds' radars thus far. A few growers have also called and said this will be a bumper year.

Blueberries are one of those so-called superfoods: incredibly good for you. They're also easy to freeze, fix or, as my son says, just stand under the bush and start eating.
