I have a herb garden where I not only have the standards like Basil,Oregano, Rosemary and tarragon, But I recently experimented with Fennel,Parsley and Dill. these are suppose to attract butterflies.
I also have 3 varieties of orange trees, a ruby red grapefruit tree,peach tree and 4 or 5 lemon trees all but one of the lemon trees are in pots

Then there are the "bazillion" non eatable plants I have in the rest of my garden areas

I grow both Italian and Spanish oregeno, basil, garlic and chives. I'd like to start dill next year, too.

I have a crab-apple tree, a red delicious, a yellow delicous & a pear tree.

plus a whole bunch of other stuff!

I checked a few things for places I've owned in the past. I'm getting ready to buy a Satsuma orange for my yard. I've had them in my previous yards. They are more cold tolerant than other citrus and taste like tangerines. I also have a pomegranate tree that has tripled in size since I planted it this spring. It's now taller than I am. I also planted blueberries and muscadine grapes.

There are so many wonderful "dooryard" fruits you can grow on a small piece of property.

So if I let my grass grow "long" does that count as hay or wheat?

I also checked stuff that I've grown in the past on other property, but I am pretty much up to speed here now. I do have an avocado plant, but no avocados (and probably never will.) Still have a tomato or two out there.
I am getting my very first Meyer lemons this year, now ripening!
