I hit up Hewitt's again to get a Japanese maple and two blueberry plants. I heard you need two different blueberry varieties so that they cross-pollinate and produce big ass berries.
Here is the Japanese maple in the backyard. It's going to be part of my Japanese rock garden.
I put the two blueberry plants in the front yard to eat up some space and because the yard gets a lot of sun.
Here is the Earli blueberry:
Planting stuff is pretty addicting, but I better hold off for now until I save up some more scratch. I'd like to get two pear trees for the backyard (along the same fence as the apple trees) and a couple of raspberry or blackberry plants for the front. There may be room for another three or four depending on much sun they really need. I guess it depends on how big I want the fruit to get.
As I'm typing this entry, I see a rabbit in the front munchin' on some grass near one of the blueberry plants. Hopefully he'll just eat the grass. I don't want to have to throw down on him.
