Dreaming of a Blueberry Summer

Buds begin forming in the blueberry fields at Pumpkinseed Hill.

Buds have begun forming in the blueberry fields of Coyote Den over the past week. Although cooler temperatures will slow the process somewhat, our minds can’t help but race ahead to the summer harvest season and our favorite berry treats! Right now the plants’ roots are beginning to revive after their winter slumber, providing sugars for growth later in the season. In late spring, the developing buds will burst with clusters of six to twelve small white flowers and delicious fruit won’t be far behind!
