About My Edible Backyard


Why MotherHuldah1 Love's Edible Plants

i'm a mother, masseuse, chanteuse, shutterbug, declutterer, and treehugger.



after a home orchard, vegie/herb gardens and a native rainforest on acreage, a small villa garden on a south facing slope is a bit of a challenge. my aim is to have fruit trees forming the backbone of my garden, with herbs and salad veg interspersed. where the winter sun comes in, i've planted deciduous fruits, a hedge of cardamom stabilises the steep bank and will provide some privacy from the busy road, and nasturtiums to fill in the spaces and provide cover till the bigger plants grow.



my soil is mostly red clay and fill, the main slope faces south,and the annual rainfall? well we had floods of biblical proportions this year, and very, very little since March. i'm watering twice a week for maintainence, but still, it's not enough.

my aim is to provide myself with fruit and fresh greens, while showing my clients just how easy it is to have health benefits ready to pluck off the tree.
