Perennials, or planting for the future

NYchowcook | Apr 19, 200910:19 AM     13

What do you have in the way of long term plants or trees that you planted or plan to plant for years to come?

I have some mint and sorrel out in the lawn that seemingly will live forever. I just harvested my first spring sorrel -- what a treat!

I have my rhubarb plants to put in. And will prepare a bed this year for asparagus planting next spring.
I'm also thinking about raspberry bushes, because supposedly they're carefree, and raspberries are expensive, even in season.

Also thinking about a pear or walnut tree. Instead of an ornamental, I'm thinking why not a fruit/nut tree? I'm in the Northeast.
