Our two year old blueberry plants arrived Friday and they look great. We only ordered 100 plants, 50 Patriots and 50 Blue Rays. You need two varieties for cross pollination unless you decide to plant them near wild blueberries on your property. These varieties are both mid-season with a good cold hardiness rating. We actually grow the Blue Ray in our second field and they have proven to be an excellent large sweet fruit. Right now the plants are in 1 gallon containers but we hope to transplant them into 3 gallon pots near the end of the week. If you would like any of the plants before we transplant, we can offer them for $12.95. If you prefer to buy them at the farm this summer, we will be offering them for $15.95.
Unfortunately, it rained all weekend but that actually turned out to be a good thing as we were able to get a burn permit and burn brush (mostly canes we recently pruned). The following picture is of my husband trying to burn down the field! Ha! Actually, he’s using the tractor to compact the burn pile. All went well and we were able to get a lot done.
