Peach (Prunus persica cvs.) blossoms might survive at 23º F. It is for is borderline, but some may pull through, especially those already pollinated or still only in bud. Wild plums could be one of several different things, but if anything they may be a bit hardier than a peach.

Now, if your neighbor does end up with a crop of peach and plums, what herb will he or she use to flavour any resulting fruit salad?

Haha touche'! It was an emergency! Pineapple Sage I hope! Is Shepard's Purse a green or a herb for culinary purposes? I was noodling around the recipe links for steamed dumplings and found it used in Asian dishes.

Shepherd's Purse (Capsella bursa-pastoris) is a widespread annual herb in the Crucifer Family (Brassicaceae). it is considered more-or-less native to much of Eurasia and outlying regions such as northern Africa, Iceland, and Sakhalin. It is also an introduced ruderal in much of the rest of the world. Like many Crucifers, it may be eaten as a vegetable when young and tender, and like some Crucifers, it can have a hot, peppery taste. Depending on one's preferences and the taste of the herb at hand, Shepherd's Purse may be used as a mild, leafy green vegetable or as a spicy seasoning in another dish.
