Berryful Delight

I see flowers on my berry plants! There's always a pleasant surprise waiting for me in the vegetable garden :)

left: blueberries
right: strawberries

My berries are all placed right by my house where they receive a lot of full sun. It seems to be doing them pretty good. My blueberries are doing really well despite the worm attack it received pretty early on. A lot of the old leaves are eaten up but the new leaves stay untouched. I hope the beetles are eating up whatever attacked my blueberries!

My strawberries are perky and grew twice the size since I transplanted them from the pots I bought them in. I'm surprised the slugs and snails aren't attacking them since I always see them the most around my strawberry plant. Strange....

My raspberries seems to just LOVE the sun it's getting. The plant was less than a foot in height when I got it in April but now it stands about 3 feet tall! I see a couple buds on it now. I hope I see more real soon!

I can't wait to have fresh berries in the summer. I hear birds every morning around my garden though. Maybe I should put some netting around my plants?

Hi! Thanks for visiting my blog. The strawberries look fabulous. You'll be getting strawberries in one time. They grow like crazy, and they come back next year too. :-) They are one of my favorite fruit!
