I planted 4 about 3 years ago, and the 20 blueberries I received will not be enough for a pie. I might have to drive North of the cheddar curtain to learn from an expert.

Come on. I've told you before you are welcome. You just have to make up your mind and commit to a road trip.

Mark, I planted 4 of the Northland plants on 8/19/14, and one Freindship on 5/1/15. I didn't take any berries from the Freindship this year. I stripped all the blossoms off this spring so it could put everything back into the roots and not be taxed trying to grow berries.
I also stripped about 6 quarts of green berries off the Northland the other day when I did my last harvest for the year. Hopefully I didn't over harvest on them.
Other then what I've given away, we have enough for a few more pies in the freezer.
Picture is pint bags of berries in the freezer.

Maybe you can host the next rally in your backyard!
