Spring has finally arrived!!



It seemed  Spring would never arrive this year!  Our strawberries are finally starting to blossom, along with the pears then will come the blueberries.  Everyday my view changes.

We brought in bumble bees for the first time this year.  They are supposed to be better pollinators for blueberries and will work in more challenging conditions than honey bees.  That is a plus when we have cool drizzly mornings or the temperature decides to revert to April again.

Another first for us will be the installation of wireless monitoring equipment at our Hebron Ave stand.  We have been working with Verizon and Monnit to make this happen and we are optimistic that the system will help us with frost protection, irrigation and temperature controls in the future.  It always amazes me how new uses are cropping up everywhere for wireless technology. 

We are set to open our Hebron Ave. stand on May 22,2014, followed by our Breakfast with -a-view opening on June 8 at our Matson Hill location.  If you need blueberry plants, pies, jam or frozen berries before then, just give us a call at 860-633-6001 or email rosesblues@cox.net and we will do our best to make it happen.

We look forward to a great 2014 and we thank all of you for making that a reality.
