Some photos of the new citrus orchard

Frost cloth to the ready!

Hopefully a good spot, sheltered and north facing

A healthy Kaffir Lime

Yes it is. Now I have to map all the trees so that we know which variety is which - the wee paper labels will disintegrate over time!

Oh .. I so miss citrus trees having grown up in Southern California .. where everyone had lemon, lime and orange trees in their yards. Your trees are making my mouth water just thinking of all the goodness they should bring. I just don't think I could live without citrus .. we have to buy imported (from California) now that I live in a colder climate state. I gladly pay the price for organic whenever possible.

Marilyn's greengage tree had a massive crop this year although seemingly dead for several years!!. The compote is luvly . . kinda sherryish and fruity. Apple trees are truly laden with a bumper crop as well.
