My Blueberries are starting to ripen. I planted them along the fron o
my house as a hedge. The Robin's however are trying to beat me to th
ripe berries. So I have been picking them before they are full
ripened and letting them ripen in my house. I'm hoping that they wil
taste just as good
I would cover them with netting or get out very early in the am and pick the
ones that are ready before the robins get around to it. My problem was the
mowing lady kept eating them before I could get to them. It was my wife so
I couldn't yell at her.
I tasted a few after I let them ripen in the house and they did seem t
be pretty sweet. Maybe it is the varieties that I have. I have Jerse
and Elizabeth and a couple of other varieties that I don't remembe
what they were. I am getting a few berries theough by picking them jus
a little before they are ripe.

For some reason, birds mostly leave my blueberries alone. I live along the
coast of LA. I do find that that last bit of ripening plumps them up and
makes them much sweeter than when they are almost ripe. The variety is
Sharp. I have been picking them for about two months. The individual berries
ripen at different times so that I have to work in the hunter-gatherer mode.
I only get a few each morning. My bushes are quite young though. I hav
some that I just planted this year to replace other bushes. THe othe
bushes were some kind of gooseberry that the nersery guy talked me int
buying and I hated the berries. So I dug them out and put in th
blueberries that I wanted in the first place. Now I am much happier
