About My Edible Backyard


Why Chris3 Love's Edible Plants

Moved onto 2 acres on western side of range in 2003 from eastern side coastal area.  Soil is sandy with clay base adding fertility to the soil has been a challenge as it was part of an old chicken farm.  Rainfall approx 600mls year but the last 2 years in excess of 1000mls.  The orchard is north facing.
