So, here are a few things I'd like to grow:
- a fruit tree - apple?
- green beans
- spinach (I think that should go in the ground soon - maybe a planter box?)
- sweet potatoes
That's probably a good start for this year. I do need to get a few more herbs too. I really like the herbs both as useful in the kitchen and because they smell pretty and usually take little care.
I think if we get an apple tree, we either need to plant 2 or see if any near neighbors have one that will help cross-pollenate. A dwarf variety would be best both for size and because it would produce fruit sooner (3 years versus 10 for a full-size tree.) Time to start researching trees!
