Miss E and the Raspberry Bush
We have a huge yard but it's pretty picky about what it will grow. If something will grow well, it grows really really well. If something won't thrive, it really won't. We have shade and slugs and 100 foot fir trees and dry soil. It's a tough combination. I have found one kind of sunny spot on which to eek out a vegetable garden but the slugs seem to have other plans. What is working are the tomatos and the yellow raspberries though. They are hard charging and we should have a lot of both. The peppers, beans and peas? Ehhhh...not so much. I'll take it though, I kind of like having our wild, untamed, natural yard for the kids to tromp around and eat raspberries in.
