If you want to grow fresh fruit in your yard, consider planting strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries. They're a lot easier to grow and pick than tree fruit, kids love them, and with planning, you can have them throughout the summer and maybe even into the fall.

After years of attempting to force my palate to conform to the masses, I finally gave up trying to understand why no one else was talking about the little seeds that became embedded in my molars. I realized that maybe the world was silently cringing just like me to get to the sweet nectar of the strawberry.
Your 401k is tanking? Join the club. With spring just around the corner, now might be the time to consider a different kind of investment, one that offers reliable returns in the second year and thereafter without much risk. Think raspberries.
