About My Edible Backyard


Why Eiles Love's Edible Plants

I live on a battleaxe block with very little room so my challenge is to grow as many edibles as possible and still be able to access my front door! The solution is wine barrels.

This is the only tree that has any room in which to grow. It has been a magnificent bearer and the long berries are absolutely delicious. I'm going to prune it a little bit this July to keep it compact and the berries accessible.
