Friday morning and we needed a very short walk to exercise Paul's heart so we headed for the garden to see what has changed the two weeks!

The Blueberries are juicing up!

Did You Know? - The coating on the blueberries is a safe, natural part of the fruit. Known as the "bloom," the waxy, silvery-white substance on the surface of grapes, blueberries, and certain plums acts as a barrier against insects and bacteria and helps to seal in the fruit's moisture.The bloom is also a sign of freshness, since it fades with time and handling.
