Dr Young’s Pond Berry Farm 2021 CLOSED
|WE ARE CLOSED FOR THE SEASON!|
As we prepare for Fall we have pruned back
the Blueberries for next season. Looks a
whole lot different than it did in the summer!
As the year goes on we will be examining the
plants and pulling out any old or corrupted
The Blackberries on the other hand are
keeping us even busier! The plants can grow
several inches in a day and with almost a mile
of plants, it can be challenging to keep up
with their growth rate. After pulling out all the
old plants we now tend to next year’s fruiting
vines. (For fun, since we didn’t take a picture,
imagine how big a pile, and how many trips it
took to pull out almost a mile of plants
without damaging new growth!)
Keep an eye here for more changes to the farm. We’ve got some really cool additions for next season that you’re going to LOVE.
What’s Happening Right Now
Life on the farm is still springing to life! Aside from pruning, we have Persimmons coming in. While still several weeks away, keep an eye out for when they become available. There is even a chance we will have a FEW Chocolate Persimmons.
Over these middle weeks of September we have begun seeing a large family or families of otters. One is between 5 and 8! One adult is out front showing when and where to dive, and another brings up the rear. They’re fairly active in the morning making it hard to get an accurate count as the sun reflects off of their thick coats. Pictures will be posted if possible!
The new planting of Raspberries is still amazing! Its looking like a similar yield for next season.
We were very aware of the limitations that Covid 19 placed on us this season and we heartily thank everyone for abiding by the guidelines in place.
