Every year since we planted blueberries I have absentmindedly neglected to pull back the deer fencing, remove the weeds and spread more mulch until after the branches on each plant have blossomed and partially grown through the fence, thereby decreasing our blueberry harvest by at least 90%.
I think our average harvest has been something like five berries. No more! As of last week our blueberry patch is weed-free, with all blossoms still intact.
I can almost taste the blueberries now! Until then, we’ll just have to settle for dirt!
