About My Edible Backyard


Why Cindy1 Love's Edible Plants

I have an average suburban house on an average block,making as much use of my yard as possible to produce food plants that are decorative and usefull as a crop,some are positoned in the yard to also add shade to childrens play areas and others along the fence to hide the neighbours and provide an appealing backdrop.I am bringing in soil as we have mostly clay.Using lots of mulch and compost,feeding with a variety of fertilizers being manures & liquid feed,recycling of food scraps and water to provide the needs to my plants.I am having great results and almost no bugs.Planting fruit tress in the ground and vegitables in  raised beds with the addition of some decorative pots for extra colour and opportunity for those extra trees which don't mind pot culture. I have been using natural remidies to maintain a chemical free crop with good rapid results.

Passionfruit - Panama Red Pandora (Grafted) 9/10

Cindy1's Edible Fruits
Update: 3030 days 22hrs

Comments: -

Grows really good, i have it along my back fence,and on top of some mulch under my roses,which seems to be improving the soil dramatically underneath. I am cross pollinating with panama gold. The vine needs some direction for the weaving but it takes well to any damage or breaks heals quick.I remove any dead leaves thus keeping the plant green and productive,fruits are full sweet and heavy.water for more juicy fruit.

Growing: In the Ground

Water Given in: Spring

Pest Control:

none
