I was curious to hear Randy speaking of a farm close to him that had kiwi fruit vines. I investigated and discovered arctic kiwi, which is more the size of a grape when it fruits and is eaten skin and all. They are extremely cold hardy (grown as far north as Canada) and appear to do well in sun or partial shade. They are supposed to taste like the big variety and draw butterflies and hummingbirds. Not sure about bees.

They came today by FedEx and are in the ground. They need to be supported like a grape vine and I decided to let them vine the fence.

I was “forced” to order two more blueberry bushes to meet the minimum order amount from the nursery. What a shame.
