A brief moment of each day.

303/365–Edible Hedge

We’ve been working on our blueberry hedge since last year when we took out the hosta and added elemental sulfur to correct the soil pH for acid loving berries.

In January I saw a presentation on permaculture and decided to use one of the plant pairings the speaker suggested: blueberries and lingonberries. Theoretically, the lingonberry will act like a ground cover and fill in around the blueberry bushes.

We’re fencing the beds for the first few years to protect them from the proliferation of bunnies in our neighborhood. Allowing them time to get established.
