Beeries doing well so far............

Finally getting closer to the yields I desire, though it did not come easy.

Sunshine Blueberry pH-4.6 using elemental sulfur. It has been 3 months and still a very stable pH.


Boysenberry which always brings a smile, yum. Growing in a 18-Gal container on 6 canes.


Triplecrown Blackberry also in a 18-Gal container with 2 canes. A slower starter than the next door neighbor boysenberry.


All plants pictured above use organic fertilizers, such as fish and kelp in a liquid form.

An updated report:

Time to start picking.......


A decent size Boysenberry using a new organic fertilizer


Triple Crown Blackberry


Blueberries still growing strong


The Tomato plant just had to get in one of the shots


Again folks, you can grow 100% organics in containers. No synthetic fertilizers used in any of the plants pictured above. Why go through all the trouble to figure out a way to make it work with 100% organics? The answer is simple. I want the best tasting fruit, highest yields and something safe for my family to eat.

MMMMMMMMMM...Beeries! (Sorry Ron, your typo made me grin, and then I got thirsty; unfortunately, I'm at work. :-( )

Your plants look very healthy and it looks as if you will be getting a great crop of fruit. I am hoping to grow some blueberry bushes in containers here in Colorado - the alkaline soil here is a no-go for planting blueberries in the ground - so your experience is encouraging. Of course, I will have the added problem of figuring out how to overwinter the plants, but I am sure I will manage.
