Omigodomigodomigodomigodomigod

OmiGOD (*please imagine your best Rachel-from-F.R.I.E.N.D.S accent here*)! I'm growing blueberries! I mean, my blueberry PLANT is growing blueberries! I have a blueberry plant which apparently didn't die over the winter, which I didnt glance at over the spring, and which I didn't bother watering in the summer, because I simply didnt even imagine it was a blueberry plant, even when amma asked me if it was a blueberry plant growing in the pot (what I said to her was "No way, ma, it's growing too sturdily, it's just a weed" - but blessed be, I didnt rip the plant out by the root and discard it... I just let it flourish away) - and now it IS a blueberry plant, which had flowers, and the flowers are now growing into actual blueberries! I have a blueberry plant, folks! I'm the original Accidental Gardener - with more accidents in the garden (not personal ones, just gardening ones) than accidental gardens, but who cares, I'm going to have a dozen blueberries from my own plant, soon!

Here are a few pics:

Thanks, Raaga!:)

30in2005 - Oi! Dont make fun of my 12 blueberries! They're 12 more than I've ever grown, and there are chances of there being more of them :) Recipes? Well, I'm thinking of stuffing them to put on display :D

You are so funny! But I can very well imagine your excitement when you found your plant growing blueberries! How did this happen?! They look so cute, peeking shying from their little bonnets!
By the way, I am an Accidental Gardener too. All my plants die by accident.

i recently discovered some chillies in my garden, so i know exactly how you feel. Relish the moment. Plants are like children; they survive despite the parents' mishandling! :)

I could've sworn I commented :|

Or maybe it's just my crammed brain. It's hallucinating these days too :(
