Post My first fruit harvest of 2014
A few minutes ago I harvested and ate my first fruit of 2014 - salmonberries.

When is your first fruit ripe?

If you count rhubarb, 2 or 3 weeks ago.

My grandfather used to say in his thick Norwegian accent, "You people from California think you're so fancy. We've got a lot of fruit growing up here in Minnesota too, but it's all Rhubarb."

WE've harvested some of that. We had a really poor crop of silverberries this year, probably because my extremely tidy wife hacked it to pieces. We probably have some haskap/honey berries/ blue honeysuckle but it's been so wet and I've been so busy I haven't even checked. I saw some salmonberries but I haven't noticed any ripe ones yet. Loquat could theoretically fruit about now but is so often tortured by our wet springs that it barely survives, then thrives after about July. No fruit though.
