jelly bean blueberries

When we were at our local nursery picking up some Mother's Day plants, Jon noticed Jelly Bean blueberry plants. We did some research and decided we had to have them since the only fruit we are currently growing are grapes, strawberries, and tomatoes.

We had bought a really nice wooden box from an estate sale last year. I had the intention of hanging it as a shelf in our half bath, but hadn't gotten around to it. When trying to find planters for our new blueberry bushes, Jon asked if we could use the box for those. I thought about it and figured that box was probably a bit large for our teeny tiny half bath, so I told him to go wild. He spray painted it navy and planted the bushes in it.
I know the grapes and strawberries are unlikely to produce usable fruit this season, but since the blueberry plants already have some flower buds on them I'm hoping we're going to get some berries this summer...
