About My Edible Backyard


Why Love's Edible Plants

 Ex Broadcast Engineer gone green with organic farm. Mainly citrus trees and bananas exist with newly planted varieties of nuts and exotics. Jaboticaba, Pistachio, Pomegranites all planted and under way. Gradual sloping land with plenty of rainfall and water exist. Soil heavy clay and currently in process of mulching and heavy on the organic matter to give new trees a headstart in growth.

The biggest challenge was the farm was so run down and heavy overgrowth had to be cleared back. Many back breaking hours were spent (well my Dad did this part) but has paid off with very heavy crops to the point of breaking branches and overload of fruit. Even let the fruit bats have their fill on the bananas and white mulberry fruits with still ample left.

This is a much more rewarding life (not paying as well as Broadcast industry) and more enjoyable, with the exception of many variety of snakes, black, red belly black, brown, taipan, yellow headed whip snake and of course the carpet snakes.
