You can just taste it

Two blueberries a day. It’s early in the season and the plants are only a year old. On this one variety they definitely turn color fast once they’re ready to go and suddenly they completely stand out from behind the bird netting, begging, pick me, pick me: two perfect, big, blue, berries, as if the canes know to pair them off like that for us, and so for the third or fourth time now, Richard smiled tonight as I proudly handed him his portion from the garden. With a fair amount of bemusement on his part as he held the tiny thing between his much-larger-than-mine finger and thumb.

There was never such a perfect little snack.

He would agree on that description.

That is marvelous!
We went past an Amish woman selling pies and other bakery on Saturday, and I bought an elderberry pie…my hubby, not so impressed. I, on the other hand, love ALL berries! Yummm, more pie for me!
Your two berries would have made a very tiny pie. lol!
