BerisM1's Edible Backyard
About My Edible Backyard
Why BerisM1 Love's Edible Plants
We live by the sea and our block is very low so when it rains we have water sitting everywhere. It has already killed a double grafted plum tree. I get so much satisfaction from my vegie garden. It takes a lot of work but working in my garden is relaxing, gets rid of stress and also I love the enjoyment of eating my own produce. Our soil is sandy so I have built my vegie garden up and added heaps of manure and compost to my fruit trees. My garden is only about 18 months old but I already have 3 olive trees, 2 oranges, 2 apples, 1 lemon, 2 apples, 1 fig, 2 kumquats and 2 espaliered pear trees. Not much room for more.

BerisM1's Edible Fruits
Update: 4334 days 18hrs
My orange tree is only one year old and I have only had one orange from it but the taste was beautiful. I dont know if its my imagination or not but home grown fruit and vegetables taste soooooooooooo much better. I am hoping for a few more oranges this year. I have two kumquats in pots doing well and I make spoon sweets (Greek), marmalade and liqueure from them. When my son was about four he used to love popping a kumquat into his little sisters mouths and watching their faces. I also have a fig tree, also one year old, and I had about six yummy figs. Also good for jam and desserts or just to eat fresh.
