A while ago we surveyed you all to get an idea of what shade tolerant, and possibly edible, plants we could put in our little front area. Some of the early winners here are fennel, a dwarf iris, violets, black-eyed susans, ferns, and an elderberry bush. We need to plant one more elderberry, because they need two to pollinate and other than that we're just gonna sit tight and see what happens. Everything we planted is either self seeding or a perennial and other than the fennel everything is native to Pennsylvania.
