Will the blackberries and blueberries bear fruit this year?

The blackberries will bear fruit this year. We planted the blackberry vine last year. It bore some fruit last year. This year it is covered in blossoms. We'll get fruit unless there's a store that blows all the blossoms away or the birds come and eat all the berries. I'm devising a way to keep the birds away. I'll post a picture of the whole blackberry plant this weekend.

Some of our strawberries were planted last year and they will bear fruit this year. We'll remove all the blossoms from our new strawberry plants so that they can establish themselves for a better crop next year.

The blueberry plants should also yield. The catalog from which we bought them indicated that they'll bear fruit in the first year.

I meant storm, not store.
