    Blackberries grow wild out here. They're everywhere and practically a nuisance to some people. I love them though.
    We live in a small village on the outskirts of a large town, so I've got the best of both worlds, really. I'm jealous that you actually have plans to grow things, though - we wouldn't have what we have now if the residents before us hadn't started them off, and the instability of the Scottish climate means you need pretty hard wearing plants if you want them to survive.

    Strawberrys and apples? I'd kill for them in my back garden. I'd never stop eating them. My auntie used to have an apple tree, and the apples were always totally fresh and totally different to the ones you could buy in shops.

    Its for suckers

    Organic food 'is a waste of money' - Environment - The Independent

    "Sir John Krebs, chairman of the government-appointed body, said there was no evidence that organic food was healthier than conventionally grown produce. He said he believed that people were only getting value for money if they wished to pay for the holistic approach to farming.

    "They're not getting value for money, in my opinion and in the opinion of the Food Standards Agency, if they think they're buying food with extra nutritional quality or extra safety. We don't have the evidence to support those claims," he said."

    I am very lucky
    The old owners must have loved gardening because my garden is beautiful and i didn't put in years of hardwork to achieve it.

    They must have planted a whole range of fruits. Cherry tree is my favourite one tho

    I collect the apples and strawberries and give them to my neighbours and local school

    You can do strawberries in hanging planters, they are really easy to maintain that way.

    Can't you grow anything on your property?

    That's lovely, Laila. I'd love to have a nicer garden, and to actually plant some of my own fruit and veggies but I don't know anything about gardening, so, yay for the farmer's markets.

    Other than that, not usually.

    Doing garden maintenance is probably one of the most fulfilling things.
    I truly love it.
