Yesterday we activated a vacant piece of land between two hay fields and put in about an acre of berries. Hopefully they will give us an indication of potential for commercial berry production up here. We are using a commercial raspberry grown in Alberta and another from the Pacific North West USA. In all we will know a year from now what is best from four varieties of raspberries and six varieties of blueberries. They are all being certified organic. About half the root stalk is being stuck in outdoor nursery status to fill in gaps next year..
