I started my first farming endeavor with blueberry bushes.
After two years of total human neglect and an unfortunate meeting with a very powerful brush hog type mower (my brother could not see the bushes due to my neglect and mowed down about 6 of them) my bunch of blueberry bushes ended up looking like this.
This summer I decided that I was not going to fail at my first farming attempt and began to weed all of the bushes. And to my surprise they are still alive, even the bushes that I was sure had lost their lives to the mower as well as the one that my cousin’s husband, Fred Seltzer, stepped on a few years back and seemingly killed…
This is what my blueberry bushes look like now (those are coffee grinds for acidic soil, blueberry bushes love that). Proud farmer am I!
