This year on the first weekend where it wasn't freezing we decided to venture forth and see what had survived the winter. It appears quite a lot did. Amazingly even the strawberries seemed to have made it through despite multiple frosts and a snow. The stuff that didn't survive tended to be the stuff that I didn't mind so much if we lost.
So off we trotted to the local garden center and we came back with....more fruit plants than you can shake a rake at. We now have the following growing in our backyard:
- Ornamental Cherry (unedible fruit so I guess it counts)
- Dessert Cherry (edible YUM!) - New
- 2 blueberry bushes - New
- 2 blackcurrant bushes - New
- About a million strawberries (they grow like weeds!) - New and Old
- Cooking Apple tree
- Blackberry vines
- Lots of tomato plants
- Oh and some peas
So we'll see how this all fares, but fingers crossed we won't be fruit shopping much come the summer time.
