This is a photo of the blueberries that were in my garden. I tried to keep the birds from getting them this year. I draped bird netting over the bushes and placed reflective whirly things, but they got them all. Not even waiting for them to ripen. Yes, all that fertilizing, mulching, watering... it was all for the birds. I saw the photos (below) of others who grow blueberries and they had a fortress built around them, like a greenhouse cage with net/chicken wire. Maybe next year. Or maybe just buy some!
