Did Typhoon Vongfong hit your area?

No, it passed by to the north of us. We did get some rain that turned our brown lawn back green.
Thanks for asking. 8-)

In my yard

Post by Jim in RP » Tue May 19, 2020 1:10 pm

Wife likes flowers, mainly orkids. I plant things I can eat and I eat flowers also.
In my yard;
One calamansi-tree.
One orange tree.
Three sweet lanzones trees.
Three different banana trees.
Two Coco nut trees.
Six Papaya tree
Two Rambutan trees.
One Bu-ongon tree, (a thick skinned grapefruit).
I grafted a Lemon branch to the Bu-ongon and now I have a Lemon branch producing lemon fruit on the grapefruit tree. I am interested to see if I get a bitter grapefruit or a sweet lemon.
Two other fruit trees that I do not even know the names of.
A small veggy garden on the west side of the house.
My orange tree is 8 years old and still not producing any fruit. I am going to graft grapefruit and lemon to it and see what I end up with. :)

Howdy, Stranger!

We got a break in yet another cold, wet Spring this week. Beaucoup sunshine and 70's, might even sneak into the 80's one day.

Planted peas and taters, plus about a hunnerd dollars worth of flowers.

Prolly get a killing frost next week...

Good to hear you're okay. I gave up on my garden a few years ago, I couldn't compete with the turkeys. I'd set out plants and they would walk down the rows stripping everything down to the ground. Electric fence didn't faze them either. Now it's four to six 5 gallon buckets farming on the deck.

I'm (probably foolishly) hoping for better results this year. Last year was a complete wash, never dried out/warmed up until darn near July. Year before, the )@#$(*ing deer ate everything.

Going with nets over the taters and a few peas, radishes and tomatoes in the raised bed behind the house.
