Thornless


In addition to the asparagus, we also picked up 1000 strawberry plants and 30 blackberry canes while in Kentville two weeks ago.  The canes are of the upright and thornless variety.  






All that's left to acquire in the fruit department is raspberries and plums.  I can't wait to gorge on fruit!

  1. That sounds like the beginning to a very, very tasty fruit patch!

    I have a question, if you feel like tackling it. We're going to be staying in Maitland, NS for a few months in my in-laws second home sometime from June, onward. (We're hoping to end up with an internship at a Maitland-local farm, but we'll see!) They (the in-laws) would love to see us put in a garden there. What sorts of veg/fruit would we have time to do, in mid-late June up there? I am completely unfamiliar with NS growing patterns, and thus far, have only had a garden down here in the southern US!

  2. You can plant pretty much any veg you want. The first killing frost isn't usually until the end of October/beginning of Nov where I am. There's tons of time. Not sure what's it like up in Maitland but I don't imagine it's too different. Any fruit you would plant wouldn't bear this year anyway so you can plant that whenever you want.

  4. I found them all on kijiji. One was a private residence (blackberries) and the others were from a farm whose name I can't remember.
