Well our berry patch endeavor has begun, a little sooner then anticipated. We planted 130 1, 2 and 3 year old blueberry plants from an auction 2 years ago. We have Duke, Bluecrop and Elliott varieties, they are early, middle and late season producers. The 2 and 3 year old plants should be producing fruit next year starting in early June through July, unless we have another summer like we just had — the deer ate every berry before we could pick them.
Here is a picture of a few of the plants before we put them in the ground. Isn’t our little helper super cute? Stay tuned for further updates.
