About My Edible Backyard


Why Cheryl Osborne Love's Edible Plants

We purchased property 5 years ago.  Everything was lacking water.  We have a waste water recycling plant although fruit trees are being watered by tank.  (We do have town water).  We have literaly brought back to life a lemon and orange by watering and feeding.



We have numerous trees, fig, apricot, pear, cherry, apples, orange, lemon, plums, quince, olive and almond.



Will plant this season walnut, lime and try a hazelnut.  We are going to plant these so that they are watered by the recycled water.



We have horses so use the manure.  We put it into compost bins first to 'burn off' any seeds thus cutting down weeds.  Vegie garden loves it as do all the natives.
