Dua for the First Fruit of the Season

Last year, I put some berry bushes in my yard up against the garage wall.  Alhamdulillah, look at the result:

This year, I also put in a grape vine and some strawberries. 

None of it has yielded fruit yet, but I saw a wonderful dua for the first fruit of the season:

... Abu Hurayrah reported that the Prophet of Allah, upon him be peace, would say, whenever he was brought the first fruit of the season, "Oh Allaah, bless us and our city and our dry measures abundantly."  Then he would give the fruit to the youngest one present.  (Bukhari, Muslim, Ibn Majah, Tirmidhi, and Nasa'i)
