For 2009's garden/orchard/vineyard spots? What are you going to try new or different??

I am going to try really hard to start Asparagus, potatoes, parsnips, carrots in my garden. I want to add Asian pears and persimmons, pomegranate and apricot to my orchard..And add two different types of muscadines or grapes to my vineyard..

Thank you QB

I want to add raspberries. While I have planted them before, the "new" part will be that these will survive :icecream:

I'm planting blueberry seeds and salmonberry seeds. I'll find some other stuff, just wait until the cataloges come out. :D

I have a pear, apple, apricot, cherry, plum and peach tree right now, plus 7 blueberry and grapes.
I want to plant a pie cherry and nectarine tree in the spring.
I'd love to plant a pomegranate, but here in SW Idaho I doubt if it would grow.
I will check the nursery in spring to see what they have.

Still renting, so I can't plant any trees, but I'm thinking of dwarf trees in pots. Anyone have any luck going that route?

I had two saturn peaches in pots. They did really well.

Moving my strawberry patch and expanding it at the same time. Where the strawberries are now - that bed will be filled with more cranberry plants after I work to acidify the soil more.

Expanded the garden area this fall by cutting down some trees and shrubs. Will be doing root removal through the winter - and will construct/dig new beds in the spring.

We planted purple Romano beans and harvested our first batch this weekend. They cook up green:( but they are gorgeous when ripening on the bush. The bushe's stems are a gorgeous purple and the blossoms also. Very attractive.

I was looking up links on the "peanut" pumpkin and found a pink! green bean. Have to find that one again and get an order in!

RideBearfoot, I have a tangerine and a lemon tree in pots. Yes, in Ohio. Both were seed started, the tangerine is old, 12 years if it survives to spring. It did finally produce flowers this spring but no fruit. As long as you protect the pots (even below 0*F blueberries do not survive our winters outdoors in pots) and add new rich soil in the spring your potted trees should do fine. I overwinter mine in the (currently unheated) basement.
