Post #7089093

I'm curious as to how well fruits such as blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, and musadines do at a small market. I will be retiring in a couple of years and was thinking this might be a way to supplement our income. We now have enough plants to satisfy our home needs to make jellies, jams and wine and to share with friends and family. I don't want to put out additional plants and the fruit go to waste, but if there is a reasonable market, I have a small area that I could start adding blueberries to this fall. Next spring I can add a few more scuppernong vines and blackberries. Any comments or suggestions.
