Cut down and tilled Gamma's old black raspberry patch which was thorny and gave us small, seedy, bitter blackberries. I didn't think she would mind. Plan to put in thornless, raspberry bushes that make big,sweet raspberries. Fertilized and deep mulched the 35 blueberry bushes with wood chips mixed with sheep poop. Did you know that sheep droppings don't smell...just like rabbit turds. Next year will be the blueberry bushes third year and can harvest their fruit next year. Also, the sheep got their annual shots and tasty de-worming paste.They say it tastes like cinnamon. Soon will be getting a ram (1-2 weeks) so, if he performs, will have 4-8 new lambs. Making babies is the fun part isn't it?
