Make yourself comfortable under the Tulip Tree.

My name is Victoria and I am gradually creating a suburban homestead in Central Illinois.

The blueberry bushes have been planted into the northwest corner of the backyard. There are three varieties (bluecrop, patriot, and jersey): one high bush and two lowbushes. The one on the top right is my old container blueberry; hopefully it will like the ground much better than the pot.
The holes were MUCH easier to dig than I thought. The soil is still clay and the pH will be adjusted by pouring vinegar around. Hot vinegar will also kill the grass so I don't have a difficult time keeping the area neat.
Fruit is a 3-5 year plan. Next up will be dwarf cherries and apricot.
