A few plants of note that I'm excited about

This is one of many small blueberry bushes scattered around the yard.
Her's our Tropic Snow Peach tree! Probably another year (maybe two) before we see fruit but I'm excited.
One of 5 echinacea plants that I intend to use for remedies. Yay!
This is called Society Garlic. You cook with the leaves and the whole plant smells like garlic. Delicious!
Boysenberries! I was planning to make jam but they've been so good the boys keep eating them off the vine.
And last, but not least, a Strawberry Tree! I don't have any experience with this one but I'm told it grows sweet edible berries. Not like the ones that come to mind when you think strawberries though. So, we'll see!
