About My Edible Backyard


Why Shankar Love's Edible Plants

iam a farmer in South india, Bangalore


we have a tropical soil which is well drained


20 cms


very dry and arid


irrigating my orchard is a big challenge but controlling the pests and diseases is a even bigger challenge


i get no rewards, i only make lossess because the crop i get and sell is not bought at a fair price it deserves
