Barbara Pintozzi added this to Great Lakes Gardener: What to Do In July
Harvest summer edibles. Blueberries, raspberries, blackberries and tomatoes ripen this month. Pick zucchini when the fruits are small and tender. Leave peppers to fully ripen for a better flavor.

Blueberry (Vaccinium spp)This may be a surprising plant suggestion, but it really shouldn't be. Depending upon where you live, blueberries can offer year-round foliage interest and scrumptious fruit during the summer months. These plants are perfect for container plantings as well as in orchards and tucked into perennial gardens. Their fall foliage often turns a brilliant red and remains evergreen in milder climates.USDA zones: 4 to 8Water requirement: Regular watering; more during extreme heatLight requirement: Full sunMature size: 3 to 7 feet tall, depending upon varietySeasonal interest: Spring flowers, red fall foliagePlanting tips: Plant in spring or fall and prune off twiggy growth in spring before new growth emerges.
Marianne Lipanovich added this to Summer Crop: How to Grow Blueberries
You may want as many blueberries as possible, but judicious pruning and thinning will help your plants produce larger berries and grow to their full potential. Strip off any fruit the first year (be patient, blueberries are reasonably long-lived). The next spring, only remove low, drooping or crossing canes. The third spring, cut back the branches to 6 to 8 buds and remove any stems that are growing too long. By year 5, begin removing any old canes every spring to encourage new and more productive growth.Every few years, prune lowbush blueberries back to the ground.Mildew and botrytis or gray mold occasionally may appear, but your main problem will be birds decimating your crop. Cover the bushes with netting as the berries appear so you’ll have some for yourself.

Blueberries are perfect for container plantings - they like a slightly acid soil.

Blueberry (Vaccinium spp) This may be a surprising plant suggestion, but it really shouldn't be. Depending upon where you live, blueberries can offer year-round foliage interest and scrumptious fruit during the summer months. These plants are perfect for container plantings as well as in orchards and tucked into perennial gardens. Their fall foliage often turns a brilliant red and remains evergreen in milder climates. USDA zones: 4 to 8 Water requirement: Regular watering; more during extreme heat Light requirement: Full sun Mature size: 3 to 7 feet tall, depending upon variety Seasonal interest: Spring flowers, red fall foliage Planting tips: Plant in spring or fall and prune off twiggy growth in spring before new growth emerges.
