[NAFEX] Ground Cover 4 Blueberries

The Chandler blueberry I planted two years ago has done so well that I
invested in three more cold-hardy varieties--Patriot, Jersey and Bluecrop.
I'm turning an area inside my fenced veggie garden into a blueberry patch to
thwart the marauding wild turkeys and other critters. The bed is
attractive--edged with concrete scallops and filled with peat and shredded
oak leaves, and surrounded by bark paths and raised veggie beds of cedar.
My question to you experts is: can I grow a groundcover in the bed under the
blueberry bushes? I already have one cranberry plant in the bed, but I'd
like something attractive and low like creeping thyme or Irish moss or even
something else edible. Ligonberries, for some reason, don't grow for me.
I've tried them elsewhere and they have died.
