About My Edible Backyard


Why Blazeaglory Love's Edible Plants

I grow them myself and love to see them grow. I know what is in them and on them. My soil is very good with rainfall from 5 inches to 20 inches depending on season. I grow in my backyard and so far have had good results with good fruit.

Something is eating my passionfruit vines - I know this sounds silly but I stumbled upon this method by accident... One day I was out in my garden and all of a sudden literally as many as six locust started to follow me vigorously. I would move and sit and they would follow me everywhere I went...2659 days 7hrs
Satsuma plum tree - Just put a nice 3 in 1 Plume Tree(Santa Rosa, Satsuma, Italian Prune)in the ground. The tree was bare root and a good 7 feet tall! It is showing signs of vigorous growth with all 3 types starting to produce nice green leaves. I hope I will get some flower..2660 days 6hrs

This is an Algerian Clementine. It will not allow me to change the name of the title but as I found its tag the tag said Algerian Clementine.

I bought  this tree in the pot at 6' and heavily flowered. Iit was the best looking tree on the lot. I plan on putting it in the ground soon. I will update as time goes on.


Update 3/11/13

I put this Mandarin in the ground before Winter 2012 and harvested TWO(2) nice sweet little mandarins for Christmas and it is now starting to branch out like CRAZY in late Winter/early Spring 2013. I will update with pictures this coming Spring 2013 when it begins its flowering.

This is a semi dwarf advanced meyer lemon. So far it has been a good producer with tons of flowers. I planted it last January 2011 so this will be the first year I will harvest the fruit but so far it is full of big green lemons starting to yellow. I will update soon.

After the fruit began to swell last year they all dropped! I had used some 20-20-20 and this Meyer DOES NOT LIKE IT! I switvched to a less powerfull Organic and Mracle Grow. As of now(03/11/13) it is putting out flowers like crazy! Ill update soon with new pics.

The name of this tree is Lanes Late. Sorry the title is misleading :-)

If picked early fruit is still sweet with a slight tang. Tree produces heavy for only being in the ground for a little over a year. 

The picture was taken not long after planting its first year (check date on pic). The tree is 3 years old now and has almost tripled in size. I will take more pics when it flowers this spring. The picture shows it after most flowers have fallen off. It is a VERY heavy flowering tree with a sweet fragrance.

Will update with pics once the tree starts to flower this year.

3 in 1 Plum (Santa Rosa, Satsuma, Italian Plum/Prune) (Grafted) 10/10

So far it has not blossomed as I have only planted it a week ago. I bought it bare root from Home Depot. The tree was half price so I got it for $8. The good thing about this plum tree is it has 3 varieties of plum on one plant.  The Santa Rosa and Satsuma have low chill hours (300) but the Italian prune has 800 chill hours. I dont know why they would graft such a high chill hour plum onto a tree with 2 other low chill hours but hopefully it will fruit.

I have seen Santa Rosa and Satsuma fruit in my area so my fingers are crossed. This tree was also showing strong signs of green growth while still in its bag. As soon as I planted it it took off with nice leaves. Hopefully I will get some flowers as this tree is 6foot . I trimmed 1/3 of the shoots after planting to stimulate growth. I have heard to prune after harvest but a wise man told me to prune in early spring to stimulate growth. I will update this page as time goes on.
