Blueberries with Tomatoes?

Will it be ok to plant blueberries in the same area i have tomatoes? I also have one small habanero pepper plant around there. I know blueberries need acidic soil but i use fish emulsion/liquid seaweed fertilizer every other week on my tomatoes so should that keep them (the blueberries) ok?

I think it will be okay. I've never read that blueberries and tomatoes are "enemies" of eachother. Keep in mind that tomatoes are heavy feeders so, add lots of compost to the tomatoes so that they don't rob nutrients from the blue berries.

I'm not sure what type of soil that tomatoes prefer, I've always grown my tomatoes in soil that is slightly basic (maybe 7.2) but, I think blueberries like it from 5 to 6. You might want to investigate that.
