Berry Update

Everbearing Strawberries
The strawberries are the 1st to have bird netting draped over them.  I don't know the variety of these everbearing berries.  I didn't pick up bear root and the 6-pack didn't have a detailed label.  Nonetheless, berries in hanging baskets enable me to get my hands in the dirt until I'm able to bend down.

Pink Lemonade Sunshine Blue Blueberries
I've never grown blueberries before. These are in a pot so they can be moved about the garden if we need to find a perfect location.  So far, so good.  The pink blossoms fade to white then the bulging berries shed the petals as they change from grey-green to blue.

Thornless Boysenberries
The six thornless boysenberry plants are bursting with blossoms that began to break on March 26.  I'm hopeful that I will run out of freezer space and will need to jar up some berry perserves soon.
