Creating a New Slate

I finally tackled weeding the last frontier in the backyard: the slope where we plan to put huckleberry and blueberry bushes, which are apparently good for hilly areas and are definitely good for topping our yogurt or granola in the morning and for making pies, cobbler and one day, jam. My father-in-law is definitely excited about the slope’s berry-filled future. I’m guessing that berry bushes are going to present a whole new set of lessons to learn around amending soil, fertilizing and outsmarting birds!
