About My Edible Backyard


Why DavidB Love's Edible Plants

I Love growing produce, purchased a pile of fruit trees and bushfood just to realise as I started planting my new landscape that we would have to knock down the house and rebuild as I had 1 to many children..... well nearly 2 years later after digging up all my trees, the house is rebuilt and I have a consruction zone for a garden and alot of trees in pots. Well I have slowly started replanting......

Planted in the front yard after digging them out of the back yard 2 years ago they had made it up to 3 meters high (alot of pruning) before being cut down to less that half height and placed in milk crates. I can't believe they all survived but luckily they did and they now seem to have stabalised and have started growing. At there feet are lots of Aloevera.
