Spring is Glorious!

April 4, 2010
How wonderful to see the sunshine and warm weather!  The little green berries are growing rapidly,  gathered in large clusters on the plants.  The sunshine and berries are made for each other--one kisses the other.  The plants have come out of dormancy, and have  tender green leaves much like most of the native foliage.   We will be harvesting soon!

It's Cold!

January 11, 2010

Berries need cold!  Right now our blueberry plants have few leaves, and look pretty bare!  They are in their resting stage where they need cold to stay asleep.  They have to have temperatures in the 40's to let them know it is time to rest and prepare to bloom!  The varieties we have planted have been specially developed to need less cold than the ones planted farther north.  We have heard people comment that blueberries can't be grown this far south, but the University of Florida has develop...
