Today Karise and I were out in the lovely “winter” weather…pruning the blueberry plants. This is a job normally done with snow on the ground (we typically prune during the months of January through March)!
But the Lord has graciously showered us with many gorgeous fall-like days–days of sun and temps around 60 degrees! Today we reveled in full sun, a gentle breeze, and a temperature verging on 70 degrees!!
This has been the best day yet, and I hope there’ll be more to come! It makes the job of pruning much easier and more pleasant.
Purple pruners. Pretty awesome.
Using alcohol to sanitize the pruners between pruning each bush. It helps prevent the spread of disease.
These Florian ratchet-cut pruners are pretty feisty…
Nevertheless, we sometimes have to get out Big Brother for really large branches…
And wrestle with the blueberry bush.
