I already have the following for perennial fruits or vegetables:
- asparagus--planted last year in a raised bed
- 2 apple trees--planted last year, Sweet 16 and Honeycrisp
- Goji berries--planted last year but I'm not sure if they will come back. If not, I will replant.
- Honeyberries--planted last year and did very well, they are like blueberries but don't require acidic soil
- Mulberry trees--planted 4 last summer, 3 did great but a deer got to one, we will see if it comes back
- Strawberries--I planted these three years ago and they did great. Unfortunately, I had to transplant then when we built our house. They died and I replanted. I'm going to move them to a raised bed this year.
- Raspberries--I planted three years ago but they are lagging. Last year I also planted black raspberries. I might need to move them to a better location. I need to research this.
- Saskatoon blueberries--these aren't actually blueberries but taste like them. They are hardy to zone 2 and don't require acidic soil
- Red currants--I bought currant jelly last year at the farmers market and loved it. The girl who made it said she grew the berries here.
- Cherry trees--they have tart cherry trees at a local nursery. I will research to see if I want cherry trees or cherry bushes.
- Elderberries--this is a possibility
- Horseradish --I love horseradish and would also like to make horseradish pickles
Any suggestions? Are you already thinking about gardening?
