No, it is not Christmas! I have two little blueberry bushes. I have not had luck with growing blueberrys. There are blossoms and berries on them now and I don't want to share with the birds! I had some red netting for one and need to get more netting for the other one. I read that red stones placed among your strawberries will help keep the birds away so why not use red netting to keep the birds away from the blueberry bushes!
I thought I would try growing a few potatoes so bought a few today to plant. I think they look pretty sad! These are North Dakota Certified, Russet Burbank, resistance to common scab disease and bakes and mashes well. Takes 80 plus days to grow them. I have no idea what I am doing!
I also bought four cabbages. Another experiment. I am hoping to grow four of them in one of my new half barrels with a geranium in the middle. I read that geraniums help repel white cabbage butterflies. The half barrel is about 22 1/2 inches across in diameter and about 16 1/4 inches deep. Do you think they will all fit? They are Stonehead and mature in 50-70 days.
I want to grow more greens for salads! Thought I would try these two types, Prizehead lettuce and Pak Choi. I need a larger garden!!!!!!!
And last but not least I got another book from the library to read when it is too cold raining, dark or I am too tired for more gardening!!!
