Beautiful Busy Weekend
The last couple of days have had a steady warming from 70 on Thursday up to 85 Today. I have been super busy planting fruit trees and bushes around the yard. Today, I added 2 more blueberries to my previous 4 (these are Eliot variety and should grow to about 5 feet tall). I also planted 3 apple trees: Red Delicious, Fuji, and a Jonathan. I also made some Compost Tea over-night for the blueberries (as was advised in Rodale's Gardening Encyclopedia) and added some Espoma organic soil acidifier to the blueberry beds. Tomorrow, I hope to mulch in all of the fruit plantings, train the apple trees, and possibly plant some beans.
