color me jealous!
I may have to ship you some, BD!
Yes, brag away. My tangerines are ripe and juicy, but not on a par with your clemmies.
Luvely--and perfect for Christmastime--as decoration
WOW ! That tree is loaded. A few seeds are no problem. I would call them "beauties." Lots of good vitamins too. Peel away and eat away. Another food based comment. Thanks for throwing me a bone.
Wow! The future is orange over there. What a fantastic bumper crop.Enjoy one for me, please, Petrea.
Ripe already, Hiker? You're way ahead of me. Let's do a trade when it's time.I like to share, Des. But it sounds like you don't like clementines?I aim to please, Steven.Dive, I'll be happy to enjoy several for you.
I'm so jealous! Here in Washington state we are paying a pretty price for these, and I know they don't taste anything like yours. One of the joys of Southern California...
The picture of potential!If you have extras I will definitely trade you some winter veggies for some - I've got quite a field of leeks going in my backyard (among other things).
What an amazingly fruitful tree! That dollop of fertilizer must have helped.There aren't any mandarins, clementines or tangerines for sale in our local stores yet - is AH shining extra light on hers?.
wow.. I missed my hometown in Nepal. we have big such garden... thanks for beautiful photo
Patricia, we do grow good citrus here. I learned recently that it's not indigenous, however. And alas, you get all that lovely rain.Gina, I'll put you on my list. Folks are lining up!I've seen cuties in the stores already, Bellis. I don't know where they're coming from. But most grocery store fruit is hard as rocks around here. It's certainly not ripe when they pick it, and off the vine it ripens in a grainy way if you pick it at the wrong time. Too bad. I think a lot of people may not know what good fruit tastes like.Hi दूर्जेय चेतना (I admit I have no idea how to pronounce that). Thanks for your visit. I think that's what it comes down to. I miss my home town, too. We had a big garden, too.
Mmmm those look wonderful! Clementines never would have survived in Ohio, but we did have an apple tree in my yard until a nasty storm knocked it over. My dad would put me on his shoulders so I could pick the apples and then we'd bake them into a pie. Such fond memories.
Heavy with potential -- I can only imagine how good those will taste.
Julie, we had apple trees, too! I used to love eating them off the tree when they were still green. We planted an apple tree in our Pasadena back yard just a couple of weeks ago. They won't be the same as Illinois apples but I'm looking forward to them just the same.Ms. M, I'm wondering how they'd fare in a shipping crate between here and Boise.
I love the way you say things, Petrea!
Thank you, Dina!
I love this. Just love it. Such a green thumb after all!
Such bounty! No wonder you're smitten. Just so you know, unlike Des, I love clementines.
I'll put you on that list, Susan.
