It was heartening to read on one of my favorite blogs yesterday, that my blueberries may start producing this year. We didn’t have any production the first year, and only 4 berries (four!!!) last year.
According to What’s Green with Betsy?!?:
“This will probably be the year it produces. According to my arborist husband, “the first year it sleeps, the second year it creeps, the third year it leaps”. Your plant has been working on root development for the first two years. There is a lot going on beneath the soil that we can’t see.”
I’ll keep you posted.
In the meantime, check out What’s Green with Betsy for some great, earth-friendly gardening tips.
I can’t wait to hear that you are picking blueberries by the dozen! Keep me posted!!!

Will do. Thanks, Betsy.
I like that little sleep, creep, leap saying!
Me too! It’s a good one.
