About My Edible Backyard


Why Frenchie Love's Edible Plants

 Just bought a new house, with uninteresting garden, full of agaves, camelias and rhodos. Have not moved in yet, but lusting over this website and planning an edible garden, with a few natives for the birds. Biggest challenge is the size of the yard (745m2) and exposition. The back fence and front of the house are west facing. Protected from the southerly wind and to a degree from the westerlies as there is a nature srip behind the front neighbours with tall trees. Soil type is red Norhtern NSW plateau soil. The garden is sloping to the north and well drained. Annual rainfall average is 1200mm. The reward will be the fruits of our labour, eating species and varieties not found in supermarkets and even markets, the joy for my children to pick food from their garden.

Dekopon in australia - So I planted my seeds as per Jakfruit's advice. 3 of the 4 seeds germinated. @ of them had only one offspring, the 3rd had 2 of equal size. They are all about 5cm tall and quite slow growing. They are under shade cloth - they probably need more light. An..1877 days 14hrs

Panache fig tree - Hi Aus, panache is around, but chances are the people who have it won't give you any budwood/cuttings because of the secret squirrel culture. I am currently in the business of smashing this cartel of parsimony to pieces--and if I do say so myself,..Liked Answer 849 days 6hrs
Avocado type b - I had a wurtz for a couple of years, hundreds of flowers last year but no fruit so I added a pinkerton and this year I got fruit set on both trees. I have read some people get fruit with just a wurtz on its own but I had a little space for a second tre..Liked Answer 851 days 19hrs

Grapes with muscat flavour - Some of the new "muscat" drying types are very early, may fruit before the rains+humidity really hit in NNSW. Wine grapes are also quite edible, but berries can be smaller + seedier than table grapes. Maybe work out what month the other successful NNSW..Liked Answer 1741 days 10hrs
Grapes with muscat flavour - Pink Iona came to mind when I read, it definitely has an interesting musky flavor. Don't worry about Daley's fair flavor comment, if you are not afraid of intense flavor it is good. Its just the blue cheese rather than the cheddar slices individually wrap..Liked Answer 2016 days 14hrs
