berry update

Having my blueberry bush and strawberry stow-aways stay in our living room for a week during the cold snap seems to have paid off. I think... but dare not be certain... I might actually have some blueberries this year.

Right now they're still in the greenberry stage. But I intend to do whatever it takes to get them on to the delicious blue phase of their brief lives. Even if that means picking off and squishing aphids by hand. (Four down so far.) Or keeping track of them each day to make sure no greedy bug or bird has stolen a premature prize.

Now, what should I make with my roughly 87 blueberries whenever they come to fruition? Pancakes? Trifle? Muffins? 5 bowls of cereal?
