Science! Who Knew?

Every year I plant innocent little blueberry twigs from Wal Mart or Lowe's, and every year they die.
This year, Becky the science whiz suggested I test the soil to find out if there may be some underlying reason, besides bad blueberry luck, that they weren't able to survive.
She ran the PH test and now I see her point.
So she and I are off to get acidifying fertilizer for the latest attempt at a blueberry patch.


  1. What a smart girl you have! I'm afraid to test my garden beds because I'm pretty sure they're too heavily manured. Wonder how that happened?

  2. We've never had luck with blueberries. Oh yeah, except one time we planted them and then moved away. they grew fine once we were gone. We still haven't given up.
