We also plan to buy corn, potatoes and a few tomatoes to plant for this year. And we’ll plant a rhubarb for later.

If permitted in Seattle we hope to put in a small numbers of red currant, black currant, and gooseberry bushes along the curve of the garden path.

We already have some rosemary that can survive Seattle winters. We’ll plant mint, sage, and thyme in appropriate spots.

A couple of thorn-less raspberry canes in a back corner, and some alpine strawberries edging a flower border are also planned. No need for blackberries in Seattle – they grow wild everywhere.
