blueberries

Brambles, berries…Oh My!

Just picked up our bare root blueberry, blackberry, and raspberry plants from the Pulaski County Extension office this afternoon. A great fund raiser for the local 4H with delicious returns for us. Looking forward to planting these babies and enjoying the fresh fruits that are coming! Yea!

Fruits!

We have some fruits coming on that I’d like to report on…

Here are some blueberries:

I hope that I beat the birds to those babies. The other two bushes are loaded, too.

We also have white peaches coming on strong:

Of course, our namesake the pear tree has a bazillion fruits on it. Did I take a picture of it? No. Ridiculous. But take my word for it. Despite the lack of pruning, of being hit by lightening (before our time), of last year’s fire blight, and the general brunt of wind and weather it faces, that tree produces more fruits than we and the deer know what to do with. We hope that the farm is just as productive and long lived.
