Berry Patrol

It's that time of year when I begin obsessively monitoring all of my berries. Since finding out the soil near my blueberries was nowhere near acidic enough, I have transplanted them (so I could amend the soil around them exclusively--instead of having them interspersed with other perennials) and added elemental sulfur. So, maybe they will do better next year. This year, I'll have to settle for the usual smattering of fruit. The bush below is doing the best of the six plants.
 The strawberries are doing great!
 Black raspberry just beginning to bloom:
 Maybe the birds will again let us have some of these serviceberries:
Plus the thornless blackberry, which is exploding in growth (but not blooming yet).
