About My Edible Backyard
Why Thewhitelily1 Love's Edible Plants
I love the idea of reducing my food miles to food metres, of being able to provide nutritious food for my family in case of disaster, and letting my kids experience the wonder of seeing food blossom from the soil and their joy in sharing the fruits of their labour with others.
Comments: - Vine has finally started fruiting--looks like it wasn't getting enough sunlight in spring and autumn, as it's to the south of the house. 2020 we got beautiful sweet fruit where it had escaped up into the trees.
Comments: - Still trying to get this one established in my food forest. My first attempt sadly died--I think it was sunburn? I've erected a shade cloth tent around it now--I love avocados, and had a tree when I was growing up, so I'm looking forward to it!
Comments: - Haven't managed to get any product off this tree despite its many years in my garden--I seem to have finally cracked the formula by supplementing magnesium and zinc, as well as keeping on top of mealy bugs with a neem oil/dishwashing liquid spray. Now for the first time I have ten little baby lemons forming!
