I do know where to find some wild huckleberries and they have more flavor than blueberries, so I may someday take a trip to the mountains and try transplanting some of them.

Never tried container blueberry.  Is there a special kind made for container growing?

I do remember eating some wild blueberries that I found years ago, in the freezer at Walmart.  They still had some taste, according to my old taster.  If I ever find some wild ones, I'll probably try digging them up and growing them in containers.

Idaho & Randall,

Have you tried container blueberry?

Comment by Idaho Spud on November 27, 2017 at 11:08am

No problem, Daniel.  

Randall, throwing money down the blueberry hole is an amusing metaphor.  Many years ago, I too gave-up trying to grow them in my alkaline soil.  If I could taste them now, I would try again in a large container where I could control the pH.

Oh, I've given up trying to grow blueberry bushes. My final two bit the dust this past year. My soil is way too alkaline. And, believe me, I've done everything to lower it for blueberry tolerance. I'm done throwing money down the blueberry hole.

Spud asked, not me. But glad to hear your hip is healing.

Found out my blueberry source 10 min down the road is closing its gates permanently. Boo hoo. I wonder if my son in law would like to add blueberries to our farm? Perhaps, but he has enough on his plate.

Daniel, hoping your fig tree survives.  How is your hip strain doing?

Comment by Randall Smith on November 25, 2017 at 7:43am

Daniel, thanks for the tips on blackberry bushes as posted on your "growing greener blog".

In this dry climate, mushrooms are few and far between.  If they were plentiful here, I would get a book and go searching.  If my brother, who's a mushroom expert, was still alive, I'd ask him to take me hunting, and share his expertise.

It's really a shame we've been scared to death to eat mushrooms. So many ARE edible, but we hesitate/refuse to eat them. I'm guilty, although I can recognize about 6 edibles. Not that yellow one, Thomas. Nor Daniel's. Pretty, however!
