2020 Season – Our 4th Limited Berry Year – Looks Promising
Our early season berries were wonderful again this 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 the middle to the end of June. Now that we are almost to the end of July our mid-season berries have performed beyond our usual expectations. So our pattern of being open for a few hours on day here or there continues. There is no fixed schedule. We invite you to join us when our schedules, the weather and enough berries are ripe.
Last year 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.
When there are ripe berries to pick we will post it here on our website and notify the folks on our veggie list by email. Sign up if those notices would be of interest: click on Join our mailing list and you will be added to the list.
