So I just recently saw a post about pomegranate trees, which I didn't even realize were a thing, and Googled them for fun but I believe they may need it too warm and dry for here?
So now I'm wondering what other sorts of trees would do well here.
I believe we had apple trees years and years ago but they never really took off. I'm sure that's from improper care though.
We are in Eastern Massachusetts, between Boston and Cape Cod. We have almost 3 acres, including woods, so lots of play with different sun and shade environments, etc. Our yard's fairly uneven and hilly but there are flat parts. Some parts are a little sandier but mostly it's a clay type soil. I believe the top soil is the part that's more dirt/sand and down deeper is the clay.
I really know nothing about gardening so I'd preferably like something fairly easy that won't just die on me. However I'm also thinking it might be nice to have something "different" or more "exotic" if at all possible. I do love apples though so if it has to be basic that's fine too. Also if it's possible I'm thinking maybe multiple types of fruit trees rather than just one.
I can make a separate thread for this is necessary but when spring/summer comes I'd also like to try my hand at some vegetables or non tree fruits too.
We tried last year and it was a huge flop.
I believe we tried beans, tomatoes, carrots, and some sort of cucumber or something. Would be interested in those again or.something different.
I LOVE strawberries so definitely those. We tried pumpkins when we were real young but they took over.
Anyway, point is, what kinds of things do you think I could plant here that would do well and/or be fairly easy for me?
We have a Home Depot and Lowe's nearby as well as several local nurseries a bit further away. Also could order online if there is such a thing.
I also obviously wouldn't necessarily plant it now, I'd plant it whenever it's supposed to be planted.
I've trief gardening before but I always either lost interest or conditions weren't right and it ended up being a flop so I'd like it to be a success this.time.
