Blueberry Pride

We have a lovely little blueberry bush.

It was here when we moved in so I can't take credit for it.  But this year we had a super-duty sump pump put into the basement and the water drains out right near the blueberry bush, so we're getting a big yield.

The only trouble is da, da, dummmmm...JAPANESE BEETLES.  Most years they are satisfied with devouring my rose bush.  This year they have acquired a taste for blueberries.  So I go out daily to harvest what they haven't beaten me to.  And I flick them.  Oh the joy of flicking Japanese Beetles!!!

This was my crop yesterday.   Hello, top of my cereal.
