This pandemic really put the brakes on progress. We were supposed to have been ready to go by March 14th. It was an early spring, but I wanted to make sure there were no last minute cold snaps. Peak time has come and gone. I did have the foresight to build a green house just for the plants. The first crop grew too big so I planted them in my yard close to the green house/nursery. I ordered the next crop and they have been sitting for a few weeks with LED and nutrient water just begging to be planted. They are healthy, but need to be on trellis soon.
We are focusing on 8 different varieties. Possible 9, there is a strain of wild ones on the property. If they are within the sugar tolerance then we may be bringing them into the fold. Time will tell.
We also have our favorite variety of black berry ready growing at the nursery waiting to be transplanted next year. They will likely die if we did it this late.
This did not go as I planned, and I had to turn my yard into a nursery with plants everywhere, but it is what it is in crazy covid, world.
