Wouldn’t that be an awesome movie? I mean, of course, so terrible it’s awesome. Blueberries, back from the dead! It’s actually happening in my garden!
Since I’m a lousy gardener, I failed to mulch my poor blueberry plant last year. By January, it looked like a dead stick someone had shoved into a pot of dirt. Sounds like something one of the kids would do, to be honest. I shrugged my shoulders and figured that I was simply not cut out to raise blueberries.
So imagine my surprise last week when I went outside to start checking out my gardening gear and found this!
|Check it out! Little green shoots!!|
Blueberries, back from the dead! That poor plant hasn’t even been watered in months! I ran inside, grabbed a watering can, and gave the poor little guy a drink, then moved it out where it could get some sun. I checked on it again today, and the new little leaves are actually beginning to unfurl. I gave it some fertilizer and another drink. I’ll keep a close eye on the little guy, but I think it’s going to make it.
I read up on blueberries. Apparently they’re a fairly hardy breed. No kidding. I’m planning on getting this guy a friend so they can cross-pollinate each other. Breeding zombie blueberries!!! Coming soon to a theater near you.
