July 7, 2010 — Breakfast



Following days of unrelenting heat and sun, the temperature peaked yesterday at 103.  Although the plants did not look stressed, I noticed last night that the most ripe blueberries on the bush were not as plump as they were last week.  I gave them supplemental water with the hose after sunset.   This morning, the berries looked a bit more turgid.  The flavor was quite different from last week’s harvest.   On balance, less sweet, and with a stronger blueberry flavor.  Very little of the dreamy subtlety, either in taste or texture.  Delicious nonetheless, and mercifully lacking the plastic undertones of the store-bought berries I had eaten for years.
