Here are the Blueberries, I had to cage them b ecause the Rabbits were eating the leaves.

The Manchurian Apricots are next to them.

The Rose Bush int the lower Right was transplanted last year. It is off a bush that originally was brought to Iowa from Virginia when the Iowa territory was opened for settlement in the 1840's by my wife's Great Great Grandparents.

I'll have to try and get some pics of our blueberries. They are all in full blossom right now, they look very pretty this time of year. We've got 20 acres of berries.

Would love to see pictures of your blueberries. I am struggling to get a few plants growing. I have to treat the soil with acid since ours is not really suitable for blueberries. But am determined to grow some.

JD, those are some big grain bins in the background.  Do you get a lot of noise from the fans, or is it that noticeable?

That elevator has been there since before I was in my teens back in the 60s. when I was buying new born bull Holstein calves for $5.00 and raising them to butcher on Dads 5 acres. Can you believe buying holsteins with paper route money? That is where I bought the feed.
The only time I hear the fans much is around harvest time, but since prevailing wind is from the North and west I do not notice it much.
What does effect me is with all the thousands of feet of concrete draining and dropping 30 ft, (when it rains hard it looks like a waterfall dropping on my property down in the bottom) I have about 1/2 acre of marsh and a waterway cutting a ditch through my property. That prompted my comments about needing Brians loader backhoe.

That Elevator is where the Clement Family got its start. Now the brothers own a few car dealerships, Featherlight trailers and Iowa Speedway and a big Registered Black Angus Farm.
