This spring we planted six sweet cherry bushes. So far, they're doing well. They are quite small so I'm hoping they have good growth this year. I also planted goji berries in pots. With planting those, I checked off a goal for this year to plant two berry plants. I also planted a new apple tree to replace the one the deer killed. They love the sweet little leaves on the apple trees. We have at least one deer living in our yard/woods. We've seen it here since it was a yearling.
I have about half my garden planted. I'm planning on going to the local greenhouse this weekend. This is what's on my list: regular sweet peppers, mini sweet cherry peppers, ground cherries, cherry tomatoes, Roma tomatoes, some sort of beefsteak tomatoes, kohlrabi, cabbage, celery, basil, leeks, and several types of hot peppers. I might have missed some items. I realized a few years back that I must have a detailed list prior to going to the greenhouse.
We actually went last weekend to get strawberry plants. I planted 25 plants last year in a raised bed and only 2 of them survived the winter. I ordered those online last year so I'm hoping the new local ones fare better. My kids picked out a few flowers, too. I always let them buy flowers because my grandma always had flowers for us kids.
I've also contemplated planting either a pear or plum tree. We have wild plum trews here and they do phenomenally well here. I would like a plum tree with larger plums. I will have to research what will donwell here. Lil Punk loves pears so a pear tree would be perfect for her.
Does anybody else have planting fever?
