I needn't have whined so much about winter deer damage to the blueberries. When I was pruning in March it looked like we'd get hardly any berries at all this year. But the pruning paid off and the blueberry branches are drooping with the weight of the berries. I can't see quite how that works when the buds are formed on last year's growth. I'll have to observe more carefully.

Meantime, even with the bumper crop, I've selfishly added a bird net to the top of the bushes. Sadly, a bluejay apparently got his foot caught in it and died before I noticed. I should have some kind of motion detector alarm. Or I should pay closer attention. Or I should just ditch the net and share.
