    I just planted a blueberry and gooseberry – ahhh so excited.

    I have been buying quite a few plants from the poundshop – my red currents at my family home are abundant (small plant cost me 50p). A punnet of red currents is around £2 – so these are worthy investments for anyone on a low budget who wants to increase their fruit intake.

    I am going to be planting an orchard soon – Physalis is good in Scotland – my absolute favourite.

    Yes indeed, looking good. No matter where you live, even up in a sunny paradise like Glasgow, you can grow your own food. 5 varieties of apples, a plum, blueberries, did I hear lingonberries?, strawberries, and a greenhouse full of veggies. I bet you could also grow cherries, pears, other neat indigenous berries, and maybe peaches. Have you ever had a quince? I give you an A+ 100 for growing all of that. Also, great tip on waiting until the fruit detaches from the tree with the slightest touch. If you pull on the fruit and it doesn't come off, I agree to leave it until it is ready for it will then be more ripe and probably have a better vitamin and mineral content. I do that, too with the trees I grow. Nothing beats a fruit that you pick when it's fully ripe.

    From now on, whenever I dream of living in a fruitarian paradise, I will close my eyes and dream of Scotland. :)

    Nice greenhouse and fruit! You have such a nice large yard! I guess some things won't grow there if it doesn't get much sun. I could grow fruit trees here, including figs, but my yard is too small. I do have some berries and grapes though. Blueberries like an acidic soil. If you can put some pine needles around the base, that would help them.
