We are hoping to grow some fruit this year, either in a raised bed or, if possible, in pots on the patio.
Ideally, we'd like something that will produce fruit in the first year (maybe strawberries?), but from researching, it looks like very few plants do?
We'd love to have blueberries, but it looks like those don't produce fruit till year 3 or 4, and they seem fairly expensive to buy when they are that old.
I was wondering if anyone had any other recommendations for what we could grow in our zone? Either from seed or as a seedling. We'd be open to buying a plant as well, if it wasn't going to be $15-$20 per plant!
