A Sneaking Suspicion

Project 365.4-2

Some of you know that we recently moved into a new home.  We upgraded from a half acre lot in a subdivision to 3 acres in a more rural area.  I love love love my new home, but the one thing I do miss from subdivision living is the oppurtunity for walking the dog.  The road we now live on is fairly well traveled, and there are no sidewalks, so there’s really no where for us to take our daily walk.  So instead I’ve gotten in the habit of taking Tucker out and letting him run around the yard while I meander after him with either a cup of coffee or my camera.  Most of our 3 acres is in our backyard, behind which is a 50 or so acre pasture with cows and assorted livestock which endlessly fascinate my Bassett Hound, and we both enjoy our ramblings around the property.  Even though we’ve been moved in for almost 2 months now I still seem to find something new each time I go outside, and today my discovery was this (these actually; there are maybe 10 of these right behind my grapevines).  They are small shrubs, or bushes, and I have noticed them before but have never really looked very closely.  Because they’re laid out very precisely in two rows, I’m fairly sure they’re another edible something or other, and I strongly suspect that they’re blueberries, but I’m not 100% sure.

I know it’s a little hard to tell, what with the foliage all hiding away for the winter, but anyone have any ideas as to what they might be??

  1. Hmm, I’m not very good at identifying vegetation but looks about right to me. I should link my sister-in-law on over to take a look. She pointed out some wild blueberry bushes in the woods behind my house when we went for walk last week. Looks like you’ll be having quite the harvest next spring! What are you going to make? Jam? Pie? So many options…
