About My Edible Backyard

Why MaculataGrove1 Love's Edible Plants

Keen on being more self-sufficient. "Retired" during my late 30s to concentrate on having a more sustainable lifestyle.Soil type: Varies across the property, but is primarily sandy to clayey loam sitting over clay, and finally a decomposed granite sub-soil.Annual Rainfall: Varies considerably. But is generally in the order of 1000ml per year, most of which comes during Jan to Feb. August to Oct is the driest time of the year.Orchard aspects: Citrus orchard is north with a slight easterly bearing. Sub-tropical to tropical food forest is south westerly, with some parts having a northerly aspect.Biggest Challenge: Planting out the property while raising a two year old girl.Rewards: Thus far I have had the most amount of fruit from the bananas, raspberries, figs, and mandarins. Seeing my little girl enjoying organically grown fruit is very rewarding.
