Comment by Randall Smith yesterday

Sorry about adding the "e" to your name, Don. Inadvertant. I can commisserate with you about your blueberry bushes. Over the years, I've planted maybe 20. 3 survive, one barely. Acidy soil is extremely important, and mine is highly alkaline. I add aluminum sulfate to bring down the pH.

Also on the left (green now) is a black currant bush in it fourth year. 

Comment by Don on Monday

On the left are 8 highbush blueberries.  I've had some trouble with them down through the years.  Two have thrived, two have endured, and the others have been replaced more than once.  Don't know why.  This season, two of the newer ones budded and leafed out well, but now some stalks seem to be dying back.  Must be something in the soil.  I probably should give up on the plantings that just have not worked and put new ones in elsewhere.

And what's growing on the left side, Done?  Enjoying the progression photos. I may do the same.

Comment by Idaho Spud on Monday

Don, great garden in a beautiful setting.

Comment by Plinius on Monday

Looks good, Don, and a lot of work!

Comment by Don on Sunday

My north country garden is pretty much in, save for some more beans, French radishes, and lettuces.  Today I planted 30 tomatoes, some beans, 8 "hills" of Butternut squash, 3 of zukes, and 3 of cantaloupe.  The rhubarb (on the right) is looking fabulous.  I'll bake a pie tomorrow.

Barbara, I figured you meant the fruit and not the tree.  I was wondering about the health of your tree, but it sounds like one nectarine is probably to be expected for a 5 month old tree.
