Here it is â€“ a countdown til spring. From now until the first day of spring, I will post ways to make the dreary days of midwinter a little more merry.
Day 13: Plant your backyard berry patch!
You already know how I feel about blueberries. I’m a big fan of berries in general, eating them and growing them. Slowly, but surely I continually add berries into my landscape. The current tally is: 4 blueberry bushes, 5 huckleberry bushes, a bed of red raspberry canes and more strawberries than I can count. You can get screamin’ deals on bare root berries right now. I wrote an article over at Parent Map about berry basics â€“ everything you need to know to get started. Be sure to check it out here and put a berry patch in your backyard!
