productive landscapes, lime edition
Stopped by the job site today to check on the slab, and took a quick look at the trees. While we've taken pains to protect the avocado and sapote trees on site, we really didn't invest much energy in the sad little Charlie Brown-esque citrus tree in the back yard. The excavating crew buried its trunk in soil and coral rock. Which, apparently, was just the fertilizer it needed, because now this sad little tree is producing more fruit in one season than in the last three years combined. Woo hoo! Now all we need is a tamarind tree and we'll be able to produce our own Major Grey Chutney. Pictured after the break, our first glass of home-grown limeade.
