I fulfilled a garden wishlist item last year.

After years and years of remembering trips to the blueberry patch with my grandparents, I finally found the perfect way (with little time and effort) to grow berries at home.

Enter Bushel and Berry®, a collection of self-pollinating berry plants specifically created for small spaces.

Translation? As long as you have room for a whiskey barrel-sized container on your deck or patio, you can grow your own berries too!

I had so much fun planting, tending to, and growing blueberries and blackberries last season! Take a look!

The Fruits Of My Labor

Summer 2023 was delicious thanks to the homegrown blueberries and blackberries I grew on my deck and patio.

The blueberry varieties I tried fruited back to back, so I was able to enjoy these delicious berries for weeks!

And as my blueberry crop slowed down, here came the blackberries!

I love this Baby Cakes variety because it’s thornless. No prickers when I want to grab a juicy berry for a snack.

And it produced 2 small crops of berries to enjoy… one in summer and another in the fall. Double the berries means double the pleasure!

What I’m Planting This Year

Take a look at my blackberry bush already! I can’t believe all of the buds.

And you know what that means? Buds become BERRIES! WOW! I was thrilled with my harvest last year, but it looks like I’m in for a windfall of berries this summer! Blackberry pie anyone?

My blueberry plants are looking good too. I love the foliage on the different varieties.

Blueberry bushes look so pretty as they start to flower. I’m already seeing a few flowers as well as tons of tiny buds! It’s so exciting!

I’m going to add one more type of berry to my little berry farm this year… STRAWBERRIES!

Home-grown strawberries. Just saying it out loud makes my mouth water!

And with the results from my Bushel and Berry® plants last year, I know these strawberry plants will produce my favorite sweet fruit in no time!

Who’s ready for strawberry shortcake?
