The two newest members of the family. On the left is a Santa Barbara Peach and on the right is a Fuju Persimmon. As I have mentioned we have a peach branch, most of it has had to be removed due to disease. Hopefully this one will do better, this is the type that they grow just north of us commercially. The persimmon is one that TPW gets in her CSA box and thought why not plant one of our own? Finally got some rain yesterday, .5 inches and the weather man said expect 1-1.5 inches tomorrow. That puts us at 4.44 inches since 7/1/11.
Still harvesting at least a bowl of lettuce a day as well as a few radish.
Some of the radish have pretty cool colors, here is a sample. Good thing that I am the only one in the family that likes them, that way I don't have to share.
Looking up at the Tangelo on the left, Mandarine in the center and Navel on the right
Lots of citrus, these two bags are going into work. All of the trees, except for the blood, are heavy with fruit right now, and few have flowers on them.
The ladies helped out with breakfast the other day, a little chard for flavor.
The ladies of the manor. The Giant, the black Jersey Giant, seems to get a long well with Maggie, they share a water bowl and food.
