|SSFS’s next meeting, Tuesday, October 3rd, 7 pm, will be held in person at GRuB and via Zoom.|
We hope you will join us for the presentation “Gardening with Blueberries” from long time blueberry grower Glenn Aldrich, of Aldrich Berry Farm and Nursery, in Mossy Rock, WA.
From Glenn: “My earliest exposure to blueberries would have been about 1943 or ’42. Helped my dad, in a small way, to plant the first commercial blueberries in Lewis County in 1944. Those original plants came from Eberhardt Nursery on Steamboat Island Road and they are still in production. I helped on the farm all through high school & college years and Wisten & I began our ownership in 1964. We have experience with a dozen or two varieties, soil preparation, planting, pruning, weeds, insects & other pests, harvest…the ‘whole works’ and will share what I think I know, including my conclusions about varieties for home gardens vs commercial plantings.”
