About My Edible Backyard


Why PaulandLina1 Love's Edible Plants

We just bought our first property and like to grow anything a bit unusual, even though the chill and clay soil make it a bit difficult. It either floods or dries and we have lost some tropical fruit trees ( too young ) but have not given up yet!We have some Transylvanian Naked Neck chooks and a couple of Sussex, one with a very hot temper ( Harry )Our 1/2 acre property is very long, approx 20 by 100 metres and very cleared so are aiming to plant trees for food and privacy. We currently have herbs, strawberries, corn, apple, bananas, mandarin, white, yellow and black sapote, mango, lemon, paw paw and some more.We also dug a small pond which is our Marsh Frog Reserve.Our biggest challenge is the frost and the clay soil and we go through a lot of gypsum every time we plant something.Our rewards are still somewhat sparse but we have a LOT OF EGGS and are struggling to use them. Found a cake recipe using 10 eggs which is good :-)



Cheers



Paul and Lina

I can't wait to play tricks on a mate when they come over for a beer.

I only wish I bought it through Daleys, as I got it posted to me for $28 and it is way to small. We could have got it through Daleys and it would have cost much the same but we would have a nice big plant not a sprout.
