About My Edible Backyard


Why Bobel Love's Edible Plants

I live in a block of 'Pensioner Units'.  Last year the ladies here won the 'Community Garden' award with Housing Commission. Actually the judging for this year again is today.  They are VERYinto 'Cottage Garden'

The soil here is very much SAND. I have very little in the ground but I have a good herb garden [in pots]. Everything gets salt on it to some extent.

I have Sage, thyme, taaragon,lemmon grass, many different chillies, Bay tree, curry plant, Basil, Flat parsely and am trying to grow Artichoke [2 in seperate pots].  When I get too much and it looks as if it is going to seed or I need to harvest, I give the stuff away to friends or to a small restaurant.  They all love me for it.

My biggest challenge is the wind.

Last year I tried to grow a tomato bush.  The wind won. This year 3-4 months ago I had a tomato plant come up  in my Fuscha Pot.  Well I replanted it is a pot, placed it at my front door, [facing north] in an alcove type area. The plant grew to about 5' [above the soil] and has given me over 100 'plumb' sized tomatoes.  Now I know where to grow them.

My real orchid/planting area, will be up near Stanthorpe.  That is a story from a completely different book. Nothing planted there yet.

I plan on planting some stone fruit, Chestnut trees, Pecan Nut, Eating grapes and ANYTHING but 'BLACKBERRIES'. I have to eradicate them first.

It is good that you are growing this tuber in a pot. They are so invasive, I have decided to be kind to my neighbours (I was going to place them in a corner away from other plants. You can see lots of INFO about them on my hobby-site for gardening with 4 exciting YouTube links for growing them in pots. Go to: http://janetsgardentips.com/beets-j-artichoke They are really interesting. Have Fun!
