Garden Fridays: Now with room for more citrus!

That was where the red plum tree stood until last weekend. I pollinated every single bloom by hand that I could reach (I think I counted ~20 baby plums already), and then we dug it up and gave it away.

Because space is limited back there and we decided that we really wanted another citrus tree. Maybe blood orange. Or a navel orange. Or a tangerine. Or clementine! But we can’t decide between transplanting the grapefruit tree and potting the new tree for a couple of years… or just planting the new tree in the ground straight-away.

Decisions, decisions.

This week, we picked our first strawberries (36 hours between those photos and it was ready to pick the next day) and rearranged some things to squeeze in two more pepper plants (poblano and yellow bell). And a tomatillo.


And a cantaloupe. And a red grape vine :oops:

Sorry, spinach and kale. Hope you like your pots!

Peach tree bud

The white peach tree is in full swing with over 2 dozen peaches and the other peach tree just put out its first sign of life this week.

Everything else is moving along nicely. Including the blueberries. They survived the transplant, bloomed slowly at first but now the bees are doing their job – we have tons of baby blueberries!
