That is wonderful and so inspiring! I have just started to look into what kind of perennial edibles might grow well in my area. I am a notoriously terrible gardener but luckily I have a friend who likes to garden and is very good at it and willing to get things started for me. I’ll send him this article and see what he thinks. In a previous home I had tried growing blueberries and blackberries but the birds ate ALL of them. That is not necessarily a bad thing – I love birds – but would be problematic if I actually needed them as a food source.
