The season has progressed to the point now that most of the berries on my plantings in the mountains are ripe and showing like a neon light. I have been making trips to these patches and as the berries turn red I have been planting them. It has progressed so far that I felt like they were just too big of a target for poachers. I took the camera, my pruning shears, and a walking staff to dig a slight trench with so I could plant the berries. These plants are 4 years old and I have been real pleased with the berry production this season.
As I mentioned before, this is the third time I have gone through them and planted.
I also wanted to show Maya just what it looks like and how deep we plant these berries. Today, I was using a tobacco stick to cut a small trench with and when the berries are placed in it they might be an inch deep.
Those are some nice berries, and I dont blame you, them berries are like a beacon in the dark and can catch the most novice sang hunter. I was in my woods today and picked a few berries but here in north central Indiana all the berries are not ripe yet, and in my particular area I dont have to worry as much about poachers. Good luck with your berries and hope you get them all
