Hi Jena-

Great list of plants! You are well on your way!

Sounds good! I tried to start some asparagus from seed--but it just didn't pan out. I think I may just give it another try.

We planted the first stage of our orchard this year (apple/pear) and are hoping to add peach and cherry next year. You will have a bounty in a few years! :)
