Blueberries, Yummmmmm

Its been so nice outside we've been puttering around in the yard.  I don't think I've mentioned it before, but we grow blueberries in the back yard.  We have 9 bushes in 2 raised beds.  Yesterday, we installed the bird netting.  We had to get the netting up before they started ripening or the birds would drive us crazy.  This will be a banner year for berries.  If we can just make sure we don't have another bad hail storm, we should be good to go. 

Yummm!  I'm going to try making preserves this year and maybe even some blueberry syrup.  I'll start picking berries in just 2 or 3 weeks.



  1. This is what I'm planning. It looks great.

  2. This looks wonderful. How do you get in to pick your berries? And how is the PVC pipe anchored to the ground? Thank you for sharing!
