Blueberry time
« on: May 26, 2018, 08:09:11 PM »
  My 2 blueberry bushes are having a good year.  They are about 6 years old and this is the best year so far.

Nice blueberries Chapman.  We were gone over the weekend, and I checked them last night when we got home.  The birds had a good harvest.  This was going to be my best year with the blueberries (3 year) and lots of fruit set.  The colder winter must have been good for the blueberries.  Next year, I can't take the kids to OH or I'll have to put some bird netting over the bushes.

  Jimmie, the birds can be hard on them.  I put up this quick scarecrow today. Put a shirt on a coat hanger, added pants,gloves and boots and hung it from a tree branch.

I can easily try a scarecrow right next to the blueberries next year.  Thanks Chapman.
