    well ive got some fruit this year

    the saskatoons i planted last year have bloomed this year and some of the fruits are getting close to ripe......planted 3 unknown varieties last year....planted 2 named varieties this year which should have larger berries


    the weeping mulberry i planted last year is now about 5 foot tall has about 100 berries on it this year....have gotten to taste two so far......flavor is similar to a store bought raspberry....am hoping my success with this one means i may get a larger fruited, more flavorful variety through our winters


    gooseberries, this is an unknown variety but i received 4 named varieties this year that ill get to try next year.....


    and a bleeding heart flower from the front yard.....now that its getting pretty warm out it will likely be dieing down to the ground soon

    Awesome. I have a Blackberry tree, too...or we think they're blackberries.

    blackberries dont grow in trees, they are a bramble like raspberries.....mulberries do and im told "Himalayan blackberries" can hit 25 feet though im not sure if they are technically a tree

    Congratulations on getting fruit! We harvest wild mulberries and have a freezer full of them (our birds love them), hope yours does well for you
    They are slowly and painfully killing you.....did you know that?

    How brainwashed are you?

    hah maybe next year.....im going to have maybe a cup of gooseberries this year, 1/4 cup of mulberries and 1/4 cup of saskatoons not enough really to even make a gallon of wine........in a few years maybe but not yet

    saskatoons are sorta like a blueberry that grows on the northern plains in the US up fairly far into Canada......when yah hit the mountains they are replaced by huckleberries(which are actually blueberries that grow in the western US) and in the east by blueberries......however unlike true blueberries they are drought tolerant and grow fine in clay soils that are slightly alkaline instead of the acidic soils true blueberries grow in.....
