Happy Blueberry Plants

So back in April, we happily bought three blueberry plants and set them up in our front yard. We were so excited for them to produce fruit and we happily waited for the day that the leaves would start popping. But that didn't exactly happen, as you might recall me telling you in this post from June.

But the good news is, we might actually finally have some happy blueberry plants!

We sadly took all the dead ones out of the planters on Monday and planted the new happy ones.

We're really hoping take 2 works and we get some blueberries next summer!

Our chances of success are higher too, because we actually started with three healthy blueberry plants. And we know what we were doing wrong last time so we can fix it.

I've decided that our planters look so much nicer with an actual live plant in them, instead of a dead twig.

Wouldn't you agree?

So there you have it, my fall post on blueberry plants. Hopefully the next update will be mid-summer and show off the fabulous blueberry crop we get!

Oh, and I want to give a shout out to Michael and Sonia at Wilson's Fresh Blueberries who have been awesome at replacing our plants and giving us tips and advice on how to care for them. They are so cool and we are totally happy we went with them when purchasing our plants!
