When I attended a presentation by Barbara Barker earlier this year, and learned about her “dirty dozen” list (the top 12 most contaminated, by pesticide residue, fruits and vegetables), I determined that I should plant a cherry tree in my garden. Well, you know how it sometimes goes with good intentions . . . I did not do it!
Then I got an e-mail just now from Keith Howard, alerting me to a list of ten easy to grow fruit trees. Cherry is on that list. So, my determination has been reinforced. A cherry tree is not at the top of my “to buy” list for the fall.
In the meantime, I will enjoy the blackberries and blueberries I am already growing.
