We have four pathetic looking blueberry bushes in the back of the house but surprisingly, they all have a fair amount of blueberries on them. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that we might actually be able to pick a few this year...that is if the birds stay away. I'm also going to try rooting some green stem cuttings later on this summer.
In addition to these, our raspberries are growing like gangbusters and there are a ton of flowering blackberry canes growing wild all around the development. I've been told that they are suspected to be a cultivated variety that was planted by someone before the land was developed here so I might dig up a few plants to take with us if ever we decide leave this wonderful home we're renting.
