About My Edible Backyard

Why Sam1 Love's Edible Plants

With three children, I like to know what they are eating and where it has come from. We love collecting fresh produce, and working in the garden is calming and restorative after the mayhem of everyday life. The biggest challenge is fitting everyting we want to grow into an inner suburban block, but with a north facing yard, we at least get plenty of sun. We have reasonable soil, but we have built no dig beds, based on Gardening Australia's articles, and our plants are thriving. This winter's rain has been a boon, but we collect our rain water as well. we haven't got rainwater tanks yet, but that will come.

Having recently read some Paddington Bear stories, where Paddington grows vegetables and Mrs Brown, the housekeeper, buys the produce from him "for market prices", I decided to encourage my children into the garden by giving them each an old pot and they chose three edible plants each to grow to earn some pocket money! I Having read Stephanie Alexander's praise of home grown parsnips in Gardening Australia, and how different they taste to shop bought ones, that was one of our selections. We've never grown them before and we are watching their progress with baited breath!
