  1. There are two types of groundcherry; the small one you've got and a big one that do take a lot of space. Both taste amazing

  2. The Autumn Olive is truly invasive. In the 1980's Ohio they were freely distributed to homeowners and farmers to plant wind breaks and "living fence rows". A decade later they were very invasive. Not only do they spread by runners, but birds eat the olives and then spread the seeds in their droppings. Those plants now show up in lawns, gardens, fields, and everywhere.

  3. I love ground cherries. They took over my whole back yard though. You'll only have to plant them once, and you'll have them every year after.

  4. What were those red flowers you were kneeling next to when you started talking about Goji berries, and I saw some other, some yellow, to your right?

  5. It’s funny that you mentioned aronia berries. Growing up in Europe, we would forage for aronia berries. We learned to eat them raw. I have two plants myself, and this year I just ate all of them raw. Yes astringent, but so good and brought me back to my early years. Now my kids are learning to eat them raw. Though they prefer my blackberries to aronia berries.

    Thank you for always being honest with your garden. I appreciate it.

  6. All those spikes, and able to grow in NE America through winters, means that's definitely a candidate for "security fencing" at strategic locations around a home or property. There are north american native plants that can be used that way too, just sayin.

    As always, thanks for the video!

  7. Ground cherry annual and non invasive? Hahaha not in my area. It doesn’t die off and has taken over a whole bed. Lucky I do like to eat them.

  8. Good info. We planted aronia thinking the berries would be good processed, but the variety that we have doesn't even make an interesting jelly by itself. We tried mixing it with rhubarb and that made something like a not particularly flavorful blackberry jam, not worth repeating. This year we tried aronia/sumac (sumac for acidity which aronia lacks) syrup, which is very astringent but tasty. The anthocyanins in aronia make it medicinal, so it is probably worth it for that. You can't really eat elderberry fresh off the bush either, but it makes great syrup and is also medicinal. Aronia is a pretty plant, can be easily cut back, is not delicate, and this year we found that the chickens love the berries. So it's a great chicken medicine!

  9. Question have you ever tried growing a Mango tree . I lived in NJ moved to Florida 12years ago I'm go to give it a try lol try is the key word there I can kll a plant grow one not too good lol just wondering if you had sum tips ?

  10. chokeberries have some of the highest anthocyanin content of any berry known. definitely up there in medicinal traits. also they taste very nice when dehydrated (which I know you said you don't like doing) 🙂

  11. I will say a few things in defense of flying dragon. If you want to protect your garden, it makes an excellent hedgerow. Deer absolutely detest it!
    I have one in my yard that has been there over 20 years, and I always thought it was inedible. In 2020, I was researching and found out it is actually a powerful medicinal, if you have the patience to juice it. One fruit produces about a tablespoon of juice, which is great made into a citrusaid, add water and a little sweetener. Just don't overdo it, as some people have digestive distress from consuming too much.

  12. I'm originally from coastal N.C. and we mainly plant flying dragon citrus under windows for security.
    I live in Southern Maryland, and my neighbor across the street looks just like you. His name is Brian and I call him James all the time. 🤣🤣🤣
    Love me some Tuck…and some James Prigioni! ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

  13. Are you growing a Fijoa/Pineapple Guava? If so what are your thoughts and how long did it take to get fruit?

  14. Some of those I'd never heard of. I have a quince that I grow mainly for the beautiful orange flowers, but it has produced fruit occasionally. I think next year I'll try hand pollinating and see what happens. The deer will be happy even if I don't use too many. Good to see Tuck the garden master out and about. Have a great week.
