And then there are the fruit trees and berry bushes. This is a Haralson apple tree back by our sheep barn that is almost thirty years old.
These are highbush blueberries. I've got a long row of them on the path to the back barn and graze them frequently as I walk back to feed or fill buckets. I planted them because the wild blueberries can have off years and I love blueberries.
My favorite rasperries are the black ones. This is a variety I purchased from a nursery in Canada many years ago and I haven't found its parallel in any other variety. Cannot recall the name but I believe it is Lodan or Logan black.
This is my shade garden with coreopsis, chocolate mint, & volunteer asparagus.
