Edibles in your yards now?
What can you enjoy picking and eating, from the plantings in your front yard?
I have Sweet Charlie strawberries, 5 Plum varieties, Meyer Lemon, Calamondin, Pineapple Orange, Tamarind, 5 Mulberry trees (3 varieties), Pineapples, Barbados Cherry, Alano Sapodilla, Pantin Mamey Sapote. Red Sugar Apple, Atemoya, Cherimoya, Loquat, Persimmon, 20 Banana trees, Red Limes, Coffee Arabica, and Wurtz Avocado.
They are not all ripe at the same time, but there is always something ready.
On the patio, in pots are Mangos(5), Jaboticaba, Miracle Fruit, Papayas, Cucumbers, Peaches, Nectarines, Apples, Lychees, Cherry of the Rio Grandes (4), many Citrus, more Bananas (10), more Mameys and Sapodillas. In the alcove is my Ae Ae banana and the Cacao.
If anyone wants to hear about the side yard and back yard plants, let me know(G).
The dream of having a steady tropical fruit/veggie supply in my own yard is rapidly becoming a reality. Having control over how my edibles are grown, is a comfort.
We have limited space, so I have mostly small/dwarf varieties. That backfired on us, when the hurricanes took 90% of our mature trees, so now we have harsh sun and no shade. In time, the new, bigger trees, Tamarind, and Sapotes, will offer some shade. I'm trying to plant in a pleasing manner to create a good-looking garden, not a static "orchard" look.
