New Plants!

New Plants!

Today, I bought some new plants for the garden/yard. It was such a beautiful spring day, I thought I should put some new plants into the ground.

My first stop was Home Depot. I had noticed they had more edible perennials this year than previous years. I hoped to get some cheap stuff. I found they had some nice blueberries two for $10. I really wanted them until I saw the little “protected by neonicotinoids” I put them back. Yuck! Neonicotinoids are a new class of insecticide built into the plants. It has been implicated in honeybee deaths. I moved on. I found some gooseberries, boysenberry, and purple asparagus instead.

Next stop was Egg|Plant, a local homesteading store, with a good selection of edible perennials. I have had my eye on several items for a few weeks now. I bought a lot of plants from them last year as well.

This trip I bought a hazelnut bush, josta berry, service berry, and a black currant. I can’t wait to get them all in the ground and producing food!
