About My Edible Backyard


Why Lionfish Love's Edible Plants

I have a small block, but I try and grow only edibles. I've dug every tree except for four - and put in fruit trees. We all have a role to play in being self-sufficient at home.%uFFFD The block was concrete when I started. Now, I have over 60 fruit trees and more than 20 fruiting canes. It has taken ages to get the soil into good condition after 60 years underneath concrete. But I'm starting to see earth worm activity, so my work is finally paying off.

Babaco tree - I had my first one the other day; and yes, it tastes exactly like champagne! Sort of grape fruity, sort of tingly on the tongue, sort of acidic and maybe a hint of tannins. Its a delightful flavour and very sophisticated. I adore it. Would I eat a kilogra..4661 days 17hrs
Coffee3 - Ummm. We can grow them down here Violet_Cactus!!! They just need a bit of love in winter and a trip inside. I've got two arabica growing well...4666 days 22hrs
