Berries




Pre-ripened photos of my blackberry and blueberry bush.  I do not have photos of the ripe berries because animals ate all of them.  But at least I got berries this year.  I have had that blueberry bush for 5 years and thought it was never going to bear fruit.

Awesome berries! How many did you get?

remember berries like acid
no not that kind of "acid" the lo pH kind of acid mulch them with pine needles or something like that
if you are not terribly opposed you could give them an acid boost with a product called "Holly Tone"

Ian, 3 blackberries and about 10 blueberries. Liam, thanks for the advice. What is in Hollytone that I would be opposed to?

Lovely looking berries. We'll have to try that next year. Haven't progressed beyond the peppers and chiles yet.
