Edible for partial screen
The back of my lot is completely open to the properties behind, and I'd like to plant some shrubs for partial screening. Privacy doesn't matter - the idea is just to create a visual break so that it doesn't look like the beginning of the prairie.
The location in western New York is zone 5. The site gets full sun and is fully exposed to wind. Space is somewhat limited so a long or very wide row is not feasible. Fall color and winter appeal would be desirable.
What edibles would work? We have a huge population of deer, so I'm not certain that I would ever get any harvest - I suppose that if I think a fruit is edible, deer will think so, too.
