About My Edible Backyard


Why JeffW@carina Love's Edible Plants

My wife and I love fresh food so growing our own vegetables and fruit is healthy and rewarding, whilst also a great hobby. We have lots of citrus plus two avocados (Lamb Hass being the newest). Lots of raised garden beds for harbs and veges.
