Took a stroll through our yard this morning and picked some berries to go with breakfast. In the NW corner of the box are wild strawberries, NE goosberries, SE raspberries and finally those berries blue. The cherries aren't really berries so I put them outside the box.
If you are looking for a good gardening project, I can't say enough good things about the blueberry bushes they sell these days. Ours are two years old and have huge clusters of berries, like you'd find in a French vinyard. The bushes are 4 or 5 feet tall. The only thing you have to pay attention to is that they require acidic soil-- sometimes this is sold as rhododendron soil, or simply as peat moss.
Its not such a good year for the raspberries. There are plenty of berries but they are limp.
Still waiting on the black raspberries, currants and green goosberries, not to mention apples and pears.
