If you’ve been following my nature blog and reading about my balcony garden exploits in the past, you’ll be pleased to hear…..
I saw a BLUE berry yesterday…….
Then I turned over leaves where I knew bundles of green berries had been hiding…….
Ate all the 6-7 berries straight off the bush……and then went to get the cotton bird netting to cover it. Only comment I can say is that I hope the rest ripen through the netting.
…..and I hope, what I suspect is……the plant is pot-bound and that doesn’t affect the future ripening. If the bush grows much larger, I’ll have to give it to my brother to plant in the ground up at his farm.
I suppose I should cut off a piece, but since it was a small roll of netting, I’ve just bundled the excess up with a rubber band and left it on the ground.
Blueberries for Christmas.
