On the left are 8 highbush blueberries.  I've had some trouble with them down through the years.  Two have thrived, two have endured, and the others have been replaced more than once.  Don't know why.  This season, two of the newer ones budded and leafed out well, but now some stalks seem to be dying back.  Must be something in the soil.  I probably should give up on the plantings that just have not worked and put new ones in elsewhere.

And what's growing on the left side, Done?  Enjoying the progression photos. I may do the same.

Looks good, Don, and a lot of work!

My north country garden is pretty much in, save for some more beans, French radishes, and lettuces.  Today I planted 30 tomatoes, some beans, 8 "hills" of Butternut squash, 3 of zukes, and 3 of cantaloupe.  The rhubarb (on the right) is looking fabulous.  I'll bake a pie tomorrow.

Barbara, I figured you meant the fruit and not the tree.  I was wondering about the health of your tree, but it sounds like one nectarine is probably to be expected for a 5 month old tree.

Thank you Don! <heading to garden with scissors!>

Comment by Don on May 24, 2015 at 12:44pm

Yes, you can, Barbara--and you should.  You can cut the vines to encourage (or to limit) fruiting.  In fact, that's what gardeners who grow blue-ribbon state fair specimens routinely do.

I have a question:  I have butternut squash and acorn squarsh growing in several areas and since we've had so much rain for the past month they are growing like gangbusters.  Can I simply say - enough! and cut (trim) them off.  Can I force them to stop putting out runners and instead start producing fruit?  Since they are seeds from grocery store produce I've wondered if they will ever stop growing runners and start producing actual fruit. Or if I cut them off will they die?
