As I was mowing the yard last weekend, I was thinking “THIS IS FOR THE BIRDS”, so we decided to figure out where to put more berry rows. Our land is tricky in terms of it sits on a mountain, but after sharing some creative ideas about how to plant more berries, we decided should buy more blueberries to help save time on the mowing.
We went to our usual places looking for berries, then we got a call from a blueberry farmer we did some business with a couple of years ago. He said, “I have a deal for you.” That sounded great to me because we are trying to spend the least amount of money while being efficient with our berries and garden.
$3 dollars per plant if you pull them out of the soil. It sounded good, but you never know until you actually see the plants. So, we drove an hour, knocked on the door, went to the “holding pen” for the blueberries, and pulled out 32 plants. Yep, 32 plants, and we plan to get more. These plants were bigger than other we plants we had seen earlier in the day, but these $3 dollar plants were priced $15 dollars cheaper … make sense to me.
Planted 17 yesterday, and I plan on getting the rest of them in the ground today … our next road trip will be sooner than later!
