Grow Your Own Fruit: Strawberries & Blueberries Are on Their Way!

Fruit Update 4/10/10 - The blueberry bushes are now in full bloom! Having never grown them before, I'm pleasantly surprised to see how beautiful the blooms are, like little bells. We also have a live one in our strawberry patch. The variety we're growing is called "Mignonette"--they'll be small but hopefully tasty. Strawberries need plenty of sun and well-drained soil. These have plenty of both!


  1. I'm a novice gardener that enjoy growing things, but often don't have a clue about the things I want and like to grow...

    I'm going to keep an eye on you I can learn some things and borrow a few tips..

    You mention that you haven't grown them before? Well" It appears that you are doing a good job.

    I like the neat way you arranged your blueberry and strawberry bushes and I'm eager to follow your progress.

    Nice to meet you and Happy Gardening..

  2. Hi Vetsy! It's nice to meet you too! There's so much out there online, but it's nice to find other people who are also starting out/experimenting in their gardens. And if you have any tips, please send them my way. :)

  3. I certainly will... and I'll be looking forward to your tips as well."
