Berry Update

It’s our first successful season for harvesting berries. The secret to growing blueberries is … We’re also growing raspberries, strawberries, and thornless blackberries. The juneberries aren’t doing as well as expected due to some hungry and aggressive deer. The deer also decided to prune our apple, cherry, and persimmon trees. Oh well, maybe we’ll have better luck next year. Oh, about the secret to growing blueberries…add pine needles. They like the acid and mulch the pine needles provide.  George

They love pine needles


Thornless blackberries


We've been picking this many berries each morning for the past five days. We should be good for another couple of weeks.
