About My Edible Backyard


Why Barry,Brassall,Ipswich1 Love's Edible Plants

I grew up on a small dairy farm at Blackbutt; as a boy I grew vegetables to get pocket money and bought a pony, a saddle and bridle and entered Agricultural shows there and nearby. I've always grown vegetables and had a collection of pot plants given to me and some roses and a collection of dahlia bulbs - as a boy;

Soil here at Brassall is sub shale - the top soil was removed to level Amberley Air Field; so I've  added manures and compost and etc to get good soil for vegies and trees and some flowers and , yes, I have a collection of pot plants and food producing plants; the usual pawpaw, banana, citrus, sweet pototo and a mango; plus cassava, yacon, tamarillo, taro, berries young, logan, raspberry, blue, ;;dragon fruit, arrowroot etc.

The land is a quarter of an acre in suburbia on a gentle slope;

Water was a challenge and now have 4 good sized tanks to collect rain water and grey water; now mainly rain water; grey water goes direct to fruit trees via a plastic  pipe system and submersed pump in a plastic drum; the rain water collects in a similar drum with its submersed pump.


We eat up to 6 home grown vegies currently per meal; cassava, yacon, beans , peas, pumpkin, tomatoes, oranges, mandarins,
