Blueberry Babies

blueberrybloomsWith any luck, these pretty little flowers will ripen into one of the Hurricane’s favorite fruits. POD even remembered to fertilize them last fall and earlier this spring with a little nitrogen-rich blood meal. Short of pH testing, I think the blueberry rules are being followed pretty closely.

Although this is their forth year of life (which means, theoretically, that they should produce at least a few handfuls of fruit), we’ll keep our expectations modest. After all, they’ve exceeded expectations elsewhere  the blossoms are long-lasting and rather beautiful, the shrub is a lovely green, and the fiery red leaves are a joy in the fall.
