I planted 6 blueberry plants specifically for my weather zone, next to my raspberries and strawberries. This was my 2nd year. They haven’t grown much and I hardly got any berries? My raspberries and strawberries have taken off but not my blue berries. I have sandy composted soil and blueberries grow well in this area of Northern MN. What am I doing wrong?

It sounds like the soil needs to be more acidic, as blueberries like the acidic environment. I recommend iron sulfate. This will both acidify the soil, and give sulfur to the blueberry, which will help the fruit to develop its taste.
