About My Edible Backyard


Why SAndy Leigh Love's Edible Plants

 We have an old dairy property - 72 acres of blacksoil, most is beef cattle pasture at the moment, however we are looking to see if tahitian limes, finger limes and bush lemons do well.  If so we'll set up a bigger income producing operation, however water is our issue as we are on tanks so still in the experimentation stage at the moment.
