Garden Year 2

Last year we seemed to spend a lot of time trying to actually make our garden...well a garden. At one point it definitely resembled a small scale model of a World War I battlefield with only a rickety faded teal shed left standing.

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.
