The blueberries are abundant again this year.  I used so many last fall and winter, but have already stocked my freezer with many more than last year.

The birds have been relentlessly finding ways to get under the netting.  The catbird and brown thrasher are able to peck right through the deer netting.  Once in, they eat a few berries, then often have trouble trying to find their way out.  That’s when Mia and I go into action to release them.  So far no birds have been harmed in this process.
