All the fruit trees are growing

Got a little ahead of myself in that last post. While spring had sprung, it was still only in the very early stages. That all changed in the last week or two and now everything is coming to life.

As a result, I’m happy to report that all of the fruit trees (knock wood) are alive and well.

If you haven’t had the joy of smelling a citrus tree in full bloom, you don’t know what you’re missing. Here is the Meyer lemon, with tons of blossoms. Should get a decent crop this year.

Next is the Valencia orange, no blossoms yet, but lots of new growth.

Buds breaking through on one of the pear trees. It’s really cool checking the buds every day and watching them push out little by little.

Last, here is one of the potted peach/nectarine seedlings from last year. The ones in the ground haven’t sprouted yet, but this guy has some new growth on him..

Every year mother nature throws us curve balls with the weather, so you never know what’s going to bloom or when, and you’ll drive yourself crazy if you try to follow the calendar. In the immortal words of Axl Rose, “all we need is just a little patience…” That’s all for now. Happy gardening.
