Awesome Find!




Friday I went to Home Depot to purchase a snake for our upstairs nasty plugged up toilet. I stopped by the garden area and found berry bushes! I have been wanting to plant berries, but thought that I would most likely have to travel to Payson or Flagstaff to find some.


Woo Hoo! I scored a four pack that came with 2 blueberry, 1 blackberry, and 1 raspberry bushes. They are basically twigs at the moment. That is whey they are covered so that they don't freeze during the night.


It does take a few years before they will be mature enough to produce berries, but I am still excited!
I also included a pic. that shows that our backyard is still a giant mud pit. Thank goodness. It made it very easy for digging the holes for the berries. Woo Hoo again!

I think you should use some of your berries to make jelly......for friends and family......

Cool find. My back yard matches yours - minus the berry bushes of course.

It may be a few years but so worth it. That is cool you planted them.
