Watching and waiting

Blueberries and cherries are almost ready to eat!   We are finding the blueberries to be excellent shrubs with nearly year round appeal.  They are worth planting just for the fall color!  They do need quite acid soil, so I added peat to the soil, along with iron, which I will repeat each year.  We decided to keep this cherry tree low growing, so although cherries are the easiest of fruit trees, requiring next to no pruning at all, we will keep this one cut to 5-6 feet for ease in care.
