My sister brought her solo blueberry over for mating. I think I'll play Barry White for them.

As you know, my sister Jess gardens on her terrace. She only has room for one blueberry. Her blueberry is thickly covered with buds. Mine...barely any buds. But no doubt enough to pollinate her plant.
I blamed lack of water on my blueberries lack of performance last year. They look so scrawny next to Jess's, I now believe that it was the same lack of nutrients that did in 90% of my garden last year. So, I piled on the alpaca manure. Literally. Last year when Jess and I went to the blueberry farm to pick, each plant was piled deeply with bark mulch, so I know that the stalks can take the extra deep manure piling.

The birds and the bees and the flowers and the trees... Forget Virginia spring is for lovers. Put Barry on when the sun is shining so the bees will give it their best effort!
