The gardens at this property are new, planted in just the past 2 years. At my old house, I got confused after a while about when I planted what tree or berry bush. I’m starting an annual post… Garden Roll Call where I will list whats been added and when. This will help me keep track of what I’ve tried, when they begin to produce fruit and how long they last.
