Fantastic! Your bee meadow is so beautiful!
Right, Randall. I fertilize with Miracid and with organics, and I mulch with pine needles, but still have problems--except for the two that bear well. It's odd. Friends with similar trouble have told me they've had luck transplanting to a different spot. So far I've been too stubborn to try that.
Sorry about adding the "e" to your name, Don. Inadvertant. I can commisserate with you about your blueberry bushes. Over the years, I've planted maybe 20. 3 survive, one barely. Acidy soil is extremely important, and mine is highly alkaline. I add aluminum sulfate to bring down the pH.
Also on the left (green now) is a black currant bush in it fourth year.
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.
Don, great garden in a beautiful setting.
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.
