Can’t bear to thin these guys but surely there will not be a good outcome?!
Yay, first decent fruit from my trees. I have to say I have been watering and caring for this tango mandarin for many years and only now I can say it is producing edible fruit and quite a few for a small tree.
The Meyer lemon tree I have only had for a year. So impressed I get one big fat juicy lemon.
Hope I have many more happy citrus years to come.
So here’s my little olive harvest from my $10 tree I bought earlier this year.
It’s a small handful of tiny olives!
And I am following these instructions http://m.wikihow.com/Cure-Olives
As my little ones are ripe, I have to do the brine curing – method #2
Washed and cut a slit in each one and I guess let it sit for a week, change out brine and then let sit for 2 months (!!!!).
I guess we will see what happens in a couple of months! Hope they taste good!
Here are some pics of the olives from October, a couple of months ago. Still greenish.
2013 New pink lemonade blueberry – Winter greens and flowering fruit in containers – kale, Swiss Chard, flowering peach and pink blueberries24 Nov
Peach is not flowering so much this year. Hopefully I will get some bigger peaches as there’s fewer flowers.
Swiss chard is so colorful! I grew these along with the kale from seed.
My blueberries are flowering too. I feel like everything flowered a month early this year.
