About My Edible Backyard


Why Potty Bob 1 Love's Edible Plants

 I have a large suburban block in Pottsville nsw , local soil is repurposed sand pumped in to about 1 to 1.5m deep sand then a heavy black silt bed , good for vey little .been here 10 years now , started getting very serious with the garden about 6 years ago . I have dug deep wide holes for my citrus trees , but survive mostly on raised beds and pots , and a lot of bath tubs .as of January 2019 , I have over 40 varieties of fruiting plants/trees and just over 40 edible natives plus a number of perennial veggies like artichokes and sweet potato , water chestnuts etc. , I am in the process of planting out the front yard with my bush tucker garden . I still want about 40 more plants , some are hard to get and rare . But I will prevail .

Curry Tree 10/10

Potty Bob 1's Edible Fruits
Update: 175 days 3hrs

Comments: -

This tree needs to be owned with care , it will grow to a giant tree spreading seedlings from here to Darwin . Potentially an invasive weed .

After that , a must for good Indian cooking ,a delicious  herb tree with a funky smell. I pick the flowers and berries off as soon as they form to prevent spreading . Grows well in pot .
