Tis the Season for Planting Trees

We went to visit the fruit tasting out at the One Green World nursery out in Mollala (about 35 minutes outside of Portland, OR).

I can’t wait to plant Eucalyptus because I heard that moths abhor it! They have these open house tastings 2nd weekend of every month (assuming there’s fruit). The most wonderful thing they cater to folks who are looking to put fruit/bearing and hardy species that flourish here in the Pacific Northwest. The red fruits pictured in the gallery are Cornelian cherries from a plant similar to the Dogwood.  The served them both as fruits and as a jam or preserves. My favorite treat of the day was the Seaberry juice.
