Planting Trees

I added 10 more blueberry bushes to the 24 we currently have.  I extended the trench, planted them and then mulched with pine needles to prevent weeds and increase soil acidity.

I am trying out tree tubes for the 1st time. I had two pear trees damaged by rabbits last winter.  They showed some signs of recovery last summer and I am keeping my fingers crossed on them.

We planted 50 Norway Spruce trees in the triangle lot across the stream.  The dogs found and fought a mink that was hunting in stream.
