Fruit of My Labor

Gardening is another amateur passion of mine.  There is nothing more relaxing than getting outside on a beautiful, sunny day and digging in the dirt, pulling weeds, and eventually harvesting the fruit of my labor.  Here are a few images from the “berry patch” portion of my garden.

What do you think?  Do you have a favorite fruit image below?

Fruit Photo #1.  Blueberries!  One of my favorites!

Fruit Photo #2.  While we’re lucky to have wild blackberries in the woods behind our house, we also have two bushes planted inside the fence in our back yard.  This is mostly so don’t have to fight the deer and birds for them! 

Fruit Photo #3.  This strawberry blossom, along with all the others, will be pinched off this year.  That’s the bummer about the first year of strawberries, you have to pinch off all flowers, fruit, and runners so they develop good, strong roots for the long haul.

  1. I’d love to have a green thumb but it’s something I’d rather just “happen” than have to cultivate. Pun intended. Blueberries are my favorite to eat so that’s my pick 😉

    • Blueberries are a good choice. Especially since, like the strawberries, the plants are thorn free. I don’t like raspberries and blackberries enough to put up with the thorns, but thank goodness my kids do! 🙂

  2. The first one is my favorite!

  3. LOVE the photos! I was just dreaming of picking raspberries and blueberries this morning. Summer can not come fast enough!!

    • I know, right? I LOVE picking blueberries! There is something so amazingly relaxing to me about that!

  4. Yum, I love berries. I can’t wait until we’re out of an apartment and in a house where I can have a garden. I like how your photos show what they look like before they’re ripe.

  5. I like all three….so three thumbs up for me!

  6. I really like the first one, I like the colors lol


I love hearing from you!
