    The main purpose of a fruit is reproduction. A bird, for example, might eat a blueberry, excrete the fertilized seed elsewhere, and a new plant can develop. However, such development can only occur when the necessary resources (including sunlight) are plentifully available. If fruits develop at an inappropriate time of year, then they'd be useless for purposes of reproduction.

    Sadly, I haven't got any blueberries in my garden. Our red currents look like being ripe within the next couple of weeks, the strawberries and cherries should ripen by around the middle of July, the raspberries and blackberries ought to be expected by early to middle August, the grapes by the end of that month and the apples in late August - early September. Oh,late July - early August for the tomatoes.

    LC Twilight Zone stuff goin on here. Your comment about this is the only place where you get credit..... as I was reading this, I realized how darn talented you are. You put out it seems like about 5 outstanding poems a day. As I was reading, I said "I love the positive comments" the same thoughts as you, except I suppose I get credit from other sources and am blessed for that. My point: no matter how many poems you put out, we love you. So keep them churning, and we will keep on loving. If frequency x 5 x love(100) - 1 troll = LC XFactor then by all means keep it up my friend. Then I thought of myself, and I can't no matter how much I try even put out one poem a day, and I have to admit, I love the nice things, and the c/c which I need, so I hope in the future I can do more. Am a bit envious of you, in a good way.
