Blueberries are delicious and even better if they are fresh. You can use blueberries for your pies, as toppings, and even eat them as they are. They are easy to grow. You just need to plant them where they can receive sunshine and an acidic soil with a PH of 4.0 – 4.5. They thrive well in clay or rocky soil. If your soil lacks PH you can just add peat moss. Once your blueberry bush has grown it just requires a little care and maintenance.
In this video Mallory Gwynn provides some important tips for how to plant strawberries.

Strawberries are a delicious and succulent fruit that goes great with breakfast, dessert or just as sweet snack in-between meals. However, strawberries, like many berries, can be expensive at a grocery store or super market. One of the best ways to get around this is to grow your own strawberry plants in your home garden. Doing so not only will provide you with easy strawberries and save you money from making trips to a grocery store, but you will also have the satisfaction of knowing that you grew these berries on your own and that no harmful pesticides or chemicals were added to the fruit that could cause health issues. Here is a simple guide to planting strawberries at home.
