around the house plants

Post  Eric Lingo on 5/27/2014, 2:02 pm

here are some pics of different stuff we have growing around some rose bushes..lemon tree key lime tree a peach tree some grapes and some blackberry raspberry bushes too

these are the various rose bushes we have.

these are the grape-blackberries and rasberries we have going

and these are the key lime..the peach and lemon trees

cant really tell in the pic but the key lime is just covered in buds in the pic

the peach tree had some issues with high winds recently..we lost a branch with about 9 peaches on it  Sad and almost lost onther branch with about 6 peaches on it, but we saved that one and the birds really enjoyed the 17 peaches that were still on the tree down to the seed.. Shocked 

now this lemon tree has a history. its about 35yrs old and was never planted my dad way back then wanted else where and just put the small tree and the potting container it came in down to get to it later that week well it turned into years and well it broke out of the container took root and well as you can see it is going very well specialy considering it NEVER gets watered if it raids ok but we never water it and the thing will fruit up atleast 3 times a year with well over 150-200 fruit each harvest which I find absolutely amazing.

in this pic you can still see the potting container sticking out of the ground

ya this tree fruits up so much if we arnt carefull we have a neighbor like down the street that has come down with one of those like 50 gallon huge black trashcan bags and cleaned the tree off of every fruit he could get his hands on. we were not happy if you want some come ask and you can have some but don't go into someones yard and take ALL the ones you can reach. Evil or Very Mad

Wow, cool lemon tree! That thing is a real survivor. Wish I could grow one of those here; lemons are so useful in cooking and are getting smaller and smaller and more and more expensive in stores!
