One of the garden things I get the nerdiest about are edible perennials. I’m always on the lookout for new ones to try. Here’s the thing about perennials: you buy them once and plant them once and then they feed you forever. It’s like magic.
I really believe the key to success with edible perennials in zone 3 is for us to abandon our preconceptions, most of which were formed in the grocery store aisle, about what we should be eating and instead eat what grows here. I don’t mean just everything that grows here (for one thing, I will not eat dandelion greens, and I will certainly not buy them from a store. It’s a matter of principle. In the words of Ron Swanson, I am not a rabbit), but we can be smarter about growing what works and then finding ways to work those foods into our lives.
If you know of perennial edibles for zone 3 (or if you want to trade for seeds or plants), please leave a comment below!
