My Blueberry Patch started in 2006. I have 24 plants currently. Most of my plants are 4 years old. I got a few 3 year-old plants from my friend. I got about 20 pounds in 2009 and 30 pounds in 2010. It usually take 3-5 years to produce heavy fruit yields. Pictures are from Summer 2009.
Photo #5 is my friend’s patch where I learned about blueberry farming. I’m currently starting 12 new plants from cuttings I made from his blueberry bushes. They will be ready to transplant in Spring of 2011. I will be photo documenting, in a journal entry, the cloning process of rooting in egg carton boats, floating in a willow bark and water mixture. If it sounds strange, it is. It’s a technique dating back hundreds of years.
I root with Willow Tea like this.
