I might’ve had a couple of fruit before but this year has been my most successful. Haven’t done anything different but it just looks happier. I got at least half a dozen real mandarins. Pretty tasty!

New pink lemonade blueberries. First season growing this. Quite excited to try the berries when they happen.

Trusty Misty blueberries. Earliest to fruit. Actually, I think Misty never went 100% dormant. I got a couple of berries a week all though winter here in San Diego.

My husband just commented that these photos don’t look very healthy! Well that’s because they’re just flowering out of dormancy back in feb! Berries and more leaves to come soon!

Too many Turnips

Just checking which tree is which….these peaches are tropic princes….they seem to have flowered first before the tropic beauty…which is actually different from previous years! Usually they’re pretty close to each other but the Tropic Prince is ready to eat and the tropic beauty is only now just ready for thinning.

New one gallon trees, just repotted. My peach trees have blossomed and are in the middle of fruiti right now and this guy seems to be just coming out of dormancy so I will get a fre more fruit later in the season. Plus, nectarines vs peaches? No fuzz!

And here’s the little one gallon olive tree….
