Last year I planted some blueberry bushes in the backyard and I am looking forward to picking some fresh blueberries this year. I bought the bushes on clearance from the KMart Garden Center at a huge markdown. The plants were originally $25 for each bush. But I was able to grab out 4 of them for just $5 each. I figured that I easily spend $5 a month on fresh berries at the grocery store. So if these bushes give me a cup or two of berries than I will be saving money after just 4 months, plus they will be totally fresh since they are right here in my yard.
From what I read online about blueberry bushes, they do not produce fruit the first year they are planted in your garden. So I am hoping that I am calculating that correctly by expecting them to produce this summer. If I am wrong, they will not produce this summer but will be giving me fresh berries NEXT summer. I can’t wait to see if I get berries in my garden this year or not!
