A new field of blueberries is taking shape on Pumpkinseed Hill! Our team of farmers spent a recent foggy morning planting hundreds of young blueberry bushes on a gently sloping hillside near our “Coyote Den” blueberry field. The weather conditions were perfect for transplanting the bushes without the stress of sun and heat. After soaking the roots, we spaced the plants a couple of feet apart and dug holes in the rocky hillside. The farmers kept an eye out for grubs that would attack the tender young roots if given the chance. After planting the blueberries at the proper depth, we filled in the holes with soil and pressed them gently into the ground with the tips of our shoes to make sure they were snug. In a couple of years this field will be bursting with delicious berries for our guests to pick!
