Nacent Berries

A few years ago I replanted the strawberry bed—S. loves strawberries (and I love S.) After the plants established themselves, they began producing like crazy. This year will be no exception—there are hundreds of little green berries in the patch, and now they're on the verge of ripening. In additon to the strawbs, there promises to be a bumper raspberry crop, and my rhubarb is flourishing. Alas, the blueberries that I planted this spring aren't quite up to speed yet. I think that one of the five plants blossomed, and I may get about four berries, if the birds don't get them first. No worries, though. I'm sure that next year they'll come into their own.

Baby berry, green and hairy.

Blurry raspberry blossoms.

So this is what a future blueberry looks like. Pretty cool.
