...are there no blackberry farms in this area? Do blackberries not grow well right around here? I was looking online for listings of places that sell blackberries or raspberries and a lot of them seem to be either in the Sanford, Fuquay-Varina, Smithfield area, or around Asheville...and one in Stokesdale. They also don't all have websites...which is not a big problem, but I like to be able to look at a website to get an idea of what the place is like.
I was thinking about planting some blackberries and raspberries next year, but if they don't grow right here that won't work. Although, now that I think of it, there are tons of the wild blackberries around, so presumably the nicer ones would grow, but nobody's selling them here?
On the other hand, there's a blueberry place just on the other side of town...hmm...we should probably get some of those. Since our blueberry bushes aren't going to have any blueberries for a while...little twigs that they are. :p Well, actually some of them are looking better and have leaves and all...but they're still not exactly about to have tons of blueberries.
I got up early again today and just gardened instead of jogging or something...I felt like I accomplished more with the gardening anyway, and it was a lot more fun! :p
The squash now has mulch around it and a nice dusting of Sevin dust, and I also mulched my tomatoes and green peppers. We have lots of weeds that need to be pulled, but the ground is so dry the weeds don't even come out. I suppose they might come out with a trowel, but I was just tugging on few by hand. Lovely...and who has time, or wants to weed anyway?! *sigh* But it'll have to be done sometime...our yard is going to be looking like a jungle soon. Fortunately Dad cut the grass really short last time he mowed, so maybe we won't have to be in a hurry to fix the leaky lawnmower at least! :)
