Late Spring Berry Maintenance

Now that the gardens are planted we have been busy weeding, fertilizing and laying fresh mulch  around the grapes and blackberries. Cleaning up any broken or damaged vines also.

Lots of blackberry blooms and little grapes. 

Lots of weeds from that week of rainfall we had several weeks ago.
Sure wish we would get some more!

But we are hopeful for a bumper crop if blooms are any indication.

Besides Baby Hank is almost out of canned grape juice.

  1. What kind of grapes do you grow? Love your

    1. It is really a mixture of different varieties. Reliance and Concord and a Merlot type grape that tastes of Cherry. All were purchased from Stark Bros here in Missouri. The Blackberries are Doyle which are the only kind I grow and they do wonderful in my climate although some years I do provide a little protection.
