Yes, I'm surprised to see peaches grown so far north. Vines next for some homemade English wine?

delcatto: we already have a grape vine. It came from my dad about 20 years ago and has lived in a pot ever since. It even survived last year's -15 degrees outside. It has a few bunches of small grapes at the moment, time will tell how it goes. Meanwhile the fig has loads of fruit.
I also used to work with someone who drank neat alcohol from the chemilab and 10 pints in a lunchtime, but that's another story.
