2019 Season – Our 3rd Limited Berry Year – Looks Promising
Our early season berries were wonderful again last year. Big, plump and with excellent flavor. We often heard that “they are the best” and we didn’t disagree. But we only managed to be open for several days each week during the middle of June. The birds seem to have picked them all as they ripen after that.
So this past fall and winter we reversed course once again. For the first time in years we ordered new plants (260 of them) and filled in the gaps and extended a good number of rows. We are prepared once again to deal with the weird weather, the irrigation repairs, the electric fence, the birds, the crab grass and the thistle. We have been joined by Wes and Katie who agree with us that trying to grow blueberries in Maryland is not for the faint of heart. They have undertaken rehabilitating the rear patch after two years of neglect. We shall see.
We have flowers covering all of the bushes and the pollinators have been helping and as the picture shows the tiny berries have begun to set. When there are ripe berries to pick we will post it here on our webpage and notify the folks on our veggie list by email. Sign up if those notices would be of interest.
