About My Edible Backyard

Why Ping1 Love's Edible Plants

Food gardening is very much trial and error but success is the most glorious thing in the world. One day I hope to be able to grow most of our fruit and vegies at home.

My mum gave me this persimmon tree for my birthday but it's still in its pot. Now that we've had beautiful rainy week I'm happy that the soil is nicely soaked through and that the manure and blood and bone have been well incorporated, so we're ready to plant and mulch before spring.

The tree was fruiting when it was given to me, and these were the most exquisite persimmons I have ever eaten. We're hoping that the tree will fruit again next autumn, which is when we are expecting our first baby.

None yet. I avoid interfering unless a plant is suffering badly; instead I make sure the plant is vigorous and well fed to help it fight off the attack.
