29. we don't prune our bushes down as hard, so there is a taller canopy and the birds get
Edited on Fri Apr-10-09 04:17 PM by KittyWampus
the berries way on top and mainly leave the ones on the bottom within arms reach for us humans.

This method (not pruning out as much and allowing them to get taller) gives us plenty. I'd say a quart per mature bush?
