Readin' at Meem's gorgeous blog, Hoe and Shovel, I learned about blueberries in the home gardenscape. This excited me so much that I'se ordered a few bushes!
Mebbe it is a yearnin' to grow more of our own vittles or mebbe it is the novelty but this project is makin' me smile. In mah mind's eye, I'se a blueberry magnate on a storybook farm. Mayhap we need an alternate means of makin' a livin' these days.
Why not blueberries?
The University fo Florida has a strong program to help commercial farmers add blueberries to their repertoire. There are even grants to those who will put in ten acres or more of hybrids that do well in Florida.
I think that would be a grand plan--a mini- blueberry farm. So fer, Uncle ain't persuaded. He say, "Woman, ain't I got enough to worry wif' keepin' the Pork Rind Bidness goin'?"
I'll keep ya posted, but I does expect to have some blueberries this summer--a few token samples the first year of planting.
Iffin' ya have a favorite blueberry recipe, please share!
