That weekend, we planted all of it. The next weekend, we got a tornado. But wouldn't you know... all the yard damage was in the back. Not a single one of our new little plants took a hit. Not even the blueberry twig.
I call it a twig because it's really not a proper bush yet, but it's in a sheltered spot that gets lots of sun, so that will change.
I didn't expect much of it this year, what with being planted and whipped around in a windstorm and pretty much ignored in all the mayhem. But then I went out to check on it, and what do you know? This little guy has big ambition.
I'm pretty proud of the plucky little thing.
