Interested in vegan organic gardening in Texas and useful native plants.


I am currently farming my extremely tiny property (@2500 sqft backyard) in Fort Worth adjacent to a creek and golf course. Trying to keep in line with my rather strict HOA requirements and bending a few rules. My current design is something between perma-culture and edible landscaping. ;)


We currently have growing:



2 apple trees (Granny Smith / Red Fuji)

An unknown variety of nectarine tree grown from seed

All-In-One Almond

Dixieland Peach on Halford RS

Brown Turkey Fig

11 blackberries (1 Navaho/ 4 Apache / 6 Ouachita)

3 Grapes trellised on fence (Reliance, Mars, and Favorite)

3 Rabbiteye blueberries (2 Tifblue / 1 Premier)

3 Southern Highbush Blueberries (ONeal, Misty, and Ozarkblue)

Kiwis (Issai and Male Actinidia arguta kiwi) both climbing a lattice on my pergola.

Peppers (Red Bell, Yellow Bell, Cayanne, Serrano, and Jalapeno)

Potted herbs (Oregano, Peppermint, Parsley, English Thyme, Stevia, Lemon Grass and Basil)

Herbs in the ground (Garden Sage, Garlic Chives, Garlic, Arp Rosemary, and Trailing Rosemary)

Medicinals (Aloe Vera, Wild Yam, Echinacea Purpurea, 3 kinds of Lavender)

@300sqft raised bed gardens for veggies

Green Globe Artichoke

Yaupon holly (for tea)

Roses Old Blush Rose (Climbing) and some variety my wife obtained.


Probably some things I forgot ;)
