As an herb it has a lot of actions like antimicrobial, and diaphoretic. It can be used as a substitute for oregano.
It's a very cool herb and we want to use it more often.
Strawberries are beginning to make a second round of berries. We harvested a good amount in the first round.
Blackberries are beginning to ripen but they are being hindered because they are in a fairly shaded area, but there are lots of them.
In the backyard just this week I discovered that there is a mulberry tree producing fruit in the yard next door that hangs over our fence. So the majority of it is falling in our yard.
In the front yard, I've just discovered that we have black cherry tree. Black cherry can be used for a number of different things like jams and infusions with liquor.
I believe that it must take a minimum number of chill hours for the mulberry and cherry to set fruit because the last two years they did not bear any fruit. This past winter was very cold for a long time.
