Growing Blueberries with a Regenerative Permaculture slant, Regenerative Permaculture farm and Garden podcast 25
How to and best ways to grow blueberries on a farm for income or in a personal system for fruit for family and friends. U-pick farms are a interesting way to make money on a farm or large garden. The berries are great to eat, but the entertainment of urban folks to be out in nature is a massive farm these days.
Blueberries are not hard to grow. As with all plants, you have to meet the needs of the plant and soil life and the plant grows itself. Blueberries need acidic soil, they are very happy at PH of 5 to 5.5, but can get along up to PH 6.5. Blueberries like high organic matter in soil with a nice moister level. They like mulch and always produce more in full sun, but will produce in some shade.
On tonight’s podcast regenerative permaculture podcast, we look at way to add blueberries to our systems. Blueberries are a joy to eat and pick on any farm or in a backyard garden. As normal, lets looks at blueberries in the wild, and mimic the natural processes that produce high quality berries.
