About My Edible Backyard


Why Pete1 Love's Edible Plants

Mainly for the taste - so much better than shop bought ffuit and vegies. My rewards are picking the first fruit or vegie and enjoying that tase while thinking I grew that. The soil here is very sandy but with 7 years of hard work and trailer loads of horse, sheep and cow manure (thank god for freinds with farms) we are changing it into a nice looking loam. The rainfall here is about 550mm mainly in winter,spring.
