About My Edible Backyard
Why Paolo Love's Edible Plants
As a Permaculture I always love to experiment with new things.
Some of my plants include:
1 X English Oak
I use the water from my acquaculture system (Silver Perch, Jade Perch, Tadamous Cat Fish) as well as the worm farm and Quails to provide for each other.
Quail 'manure' for plants, plants for human consumption, fish quails and worms, worms for fish etc....
The challange I am having at the moment is with the more Frost Sensitive plants as I still have to create a suitabple Micro-Climate for it.
Also if any one knows a "Passive Water Heating System' also when is cloudy that could work in Winter as well please let me know
