Something to look forward to: Part 2
In addition to the strawberry plants, we've planted other fruit plants that we are hoping will take off next year. Here is one of the two blueberry plants. The plants haven't grown much at all since planting them. It grew a few leaves, that's about it. If you ask me, this plant looks pretty sad. The leaves aren't even "green". Does anyone know how many years it takes for these plants to really get larger and start producing blueberries? Also, what should I do about the winter? Do I stop watering it after the first frost? Should they be "covered" and protected like fig trees?
