Plant Misty for Me

This is real! I bought a native blueberry bush, called Southern Highbush "Misty."
It's in my yard, happily potted in acid soil and protected from wind. Looks like I will have to protect it from birds, soon, too. I got the netting already.
I had no idea there would be fruit the first season. I haven't tasted any yet, but I just may fall in love with blueberries.
There are now five kinds of fruit growing chez moi; six if you count the lemons.
It makes me happy, not an easy thing during this miserable gloomy weather.

HE DOESN'T KNOW IF THAT'S A PHOTO OF HIS WEINER?

Zoomie said...

Congrats on the blueberries, already!

From his very careful wording, I think he did take the photo and it is his - but someone else hacked it and sent it. Jon Stewart has been hilarious about this even though Weiner is a friend of his.

Blueberries = happy. Gonna get one more plant, for reproductive (pollination) purposes.

How does someone lose control of a photo of his dick? Jon Stewart said, "It's not that big!" Weiner just likes thinking people might confuse him with a guy with large crotch issues. Does he not even recognize his own underwear? Men.

Men and their dickish behavior with their dicks seems to be in the news a lot lately.

Nancy: Yes, and you want to say they're all Rethugs, but... no. Men. Jeesh.

I am thrilled that you decided to plant blueberries! They are a favorite of mine; so good for us, too.

(I ruined a beautiful yellow dress by spilling blueberry pie on it when I was 12. My mom, who'd had identical dresses made for herself, me, and my baby sister, was more than a little put out.)

Cheryl: oh, yes, the mother-daughter dresses. I feel for her.
We are excited about the new bush and might get a second one, for fecundity reasons. And they are so pretty, really.

It's beautiful :)
O, and WHO lost control of a photo of hes peen?

Mouse: We have a representative to Congress who is supposedly being framed for sending a naughty pic to a college Tweeter. He says he can't definitively say it is or is not a photo of his dong. (It's covered by underwear, thankgod.)

Zoomie said...

@Ms Mouse, the media is having a field day as his name is Weiner (pronounced weener), which is already a slang term for penis. Our media is so serious and responsible, aren't they? They remind me forcibly of eight-year old boys giggling at dirty jokes.

I obviously live under a rock (or in the garden) because I spent several minutes looking for the hidden penis in the blueberry picture.

Tra la.

cookiecrumb said...

EatClose: Well, I hope that was a few minutes of fun for you! Hmm. Could I Photoshop that?

Greg said...

So jealous! Our garden of the last 30 years has been devastated by the deer. The next door neighbor throws food scraps at them and has lured about a dozen. They eat our vegetables as a starter salad.Grrrr!

Greg: Around here you can't grow food without a fence. Our house is the first fenced yard I've had in years. I am so lucky.

The rain today in Marin is ridiculous! It's June already and I could be outside harvesting my blueberries but I'm stuck inside.

Me: Who are you, Me. I looked at your profile, and you are brand-new. I'm so pleased you bothered to leave a comment. What town are you in?
