Yard shrubs
« on: August 19, 2018, 09:10:42 AM »
I've got a couple shrubs in my yard that have borne a lot of fruit this year.  Can't remember what either one are called though.

 

   
Lots of toys for working in the bush

Not sure about the first one, but I think the second one is alternate leaf dogwood...

First one is choke cherry. Very very sour. Did I say sour?
Prunus virginiana
We just picked about 20 pounds for jam making.I use to have alot of choke chery bushes around every rock and along the road. Pulling them out with a chain and round up did them in. Than I met my wife and she makes jam out of them. So we have to go found some at other places. They seem to like stone walls the best.

curdog is right.

Exactly.  Thank you both.  There was a time when I could identify many shrubs and woodland plants but if you don't keep up with it is certainly easy to forget or is that an age issue :-\

Yes, the chokecherry and cranberry are turning already. Have seen some large alternate leaf dogwood here flower in the spring. The bushes get big.

Soon be making jelly, if so inclined. Hoping to have some Concorde grape from my old vines, but that depends on whether the fungus gets them first or even the chipmunks. Found a native wild grape in the back yard this summer, never seen them here away from the river before. Birds. ;D Might get a handful of black elder to mix with some raspberry for a vinegar drink (shrub).


Pre-commercial thinning pays off. :)
