About My Edible Backyard

Why KJs1 Love's Edible Plants

Hopefully my reward will be to grow and share my edible plants and produce with the youth and seniors in my hometown. My biggest challenge is moving from 4500 acres to 15 acres close to town and having to micro manage a garden. I had a fantastic garden on the farm but it took 35 years to get that way. It evolved... I'm a bit scared that I won't be able to plan & manage this one....   I plan to grow at least 2 of every type of fruit tree that I can and as many heirloom vegies as possible!                                                                                                        Our soil type is quite good. I will have to build it up a fair bit though, clay base. So many weeds that I don't like or recognize!! Will be a big job.   I am going to use elevated garden beds, so much easier for the oldies! Hopefully my husband will help me reticulate all of it!! Rainfall has been unusually high this summer but will need a constant supply. Frost might be a bit of a problem, have to do some careful planning.                                                                    Hoping I can talk my husband into a chook pen, he says he has built 3 and that is enough, I love chooks!!  HaHa, reminds me of the time we got 300 day old chicks, very smelly but so much fun! (Hint: don't keep them in your laundry! )                                                                                                       Just bought a book on worm farming, I have a special container to breed them, but think an old bath might be just as easy & cheaper. We have always used cow & sheep manure, but am interested in trying horse & pig manure as I have heard they are better.                                                                          I hope to upload photos of my plants & trees as I go, where I plant them and how they are growing.  My first edible plants are 'Strawberry Guava' 10 to be used as a wind break (hedge maybe). 2 'Cameron Apples' and 2 each of Blackberry, Raspberry, Boysenberry & my fave Blueberry.                 Wish me luck!!!
