Blueberries Waking UpPosted: April 3, 2013
With spring weather, we can finally go about our farm chores with visions of the upcoming season in mind. It’s still a long way off, but we’re over the winter hump, and it feels good to have something to look forward to. The berry plants are now budding out, and we’re a little behind in pruning, but should have it wrapped up soon. (Or I should say Stacy will have it wrapped up soon, as she’s done the vast majority of it this winter.) We’re still getting by with mowing twice a month, but it will be every week here pretty quick.
Of course, excitement about the upcoming summer season is tempered with the work still left to do: finish pruning, start the annual and ongoing battle with weeds, re-do the dahlia field and put the tubers back in the ground, mow,mow, mow, weed, weed, weed…
But the opening buds and dreams of sweet berries and happy customers keep us going. We’re stoked! Hope to see you in person at the Poulsbo Library on Saturday afternoon or Silverdale Library Monday evening. Or on Comcast Sportnet’s (I think I mistakenly referred to it as Fox Sportsnet previously) Outdoor GPS show tomorrow.
