About My Edible Backyard


Why Mari Love's Edible Plants

I get deep sense of well-being from growing stuff and eating it.  Challenges? Mostly the wildlife - bugs, birds, fruit bats, clay-shale, drought followed by incessant rain...  This year didn't get to each much of our fruit but veggies were ok.

Mushroom compost for fruit trees - Hey what a good site! I stumbled on it looking for answer to whether I could safely put the Calcium chloride into my composting toilet (they say it's septic safe)or compost. I've got lots of it at the moment trying to stop mould in the cupboards. BTW ..3108 days 10hrs

I like the taste of the fruit and it doesn't seem to get attacked by fruit fly and such.

Pollination: No

Question:

It has never fruited and I'm wondering how long I have to wait or whether it needs something.

Update: 3108 days 9hrs

Pollination: No

Question:

It's hanging in there, but I don't think I've been kind enough to it.  Should I pull it out, improve the soid and start again?  Or can it be revived?

Water Given in: Summer

Pollination: No

Question:

It hasn't fruited since we got a few the first time it fruited.  It is planted next to a loquat (doesn't fruit either) that has outgrown it and is probably shading it out.  Should I prune the loquat severely?
