Fruit trees

 Early interesting Truck:

 I ran across this 1920 Packard truck, followed by a 50s Studebaker.

For today:

I have mentioned that when we bought this trailer the lot has three citrus trees.  WE are excited about this since we both love oranges and grapefruits.  We don’t mind lemonade either but seldom have it.


I am guessing which tree is which.  The largest tree Methinks is grapefruit, and it doesn’t look healthy to me.  Looking close I could see some worm holes and a lot of parasites. Parasites I mean, such as extra moss growths.  I have pulled all those loose.


Yesterday we bought some citrus fertilizer and some worm and bug spray.  I am supposed to spread the fertilizer every 4 weeks.  The worm spray is safe to spray on the tree if it is not in bloom.


I sawed a couple dead limbs, I was wondering if it would help to paint those limb stumps to arrest more rotting????


So here is the trees as I see them:

First the Grapefruit:


I'm guess this because the fruit it larger.

Second is the lemon: The shape of the gree fruit is a little different.

Last is more of a bush, but I think it is Orange:

Health wise, I am feeling fine (mostly).  Sherry is feeling much better she says.  The RV hasn’t contacted us to see how she is!  LOL

 Today I added more shelves, one never gets too many shelves in HIS play house.

 I will post a picture of Lucy if it comes out.  She doesn’t allow pictures but I shot this thru the window as she ate on the card table on the patio.

 (she heard me at the door and turned to look)

How nice to have fruit trees!!! I have a little lemon tree I started it from a store bought lemon. It is now about 3 ft tall. It has not fruit but very large thorns.
Glad to hear yall are feeling better.

Rainy Sunday

What a blessing to hear y'all are feeling better!
Me, I wouldn't know those fruit trees from a lunchbox. (LOL) Florida's soil is sure good for growing citrus.

Those citrus trees all look enticing, hope the crop turns out great! I agree with the comments concerning y'all health, glad to hear you're feeling better. Methinks it's having kitties around!!! Hugs from Chobee, Glenda

I'd always wished we could grow citrus trees up north., but we can't have everything. I'm happy for you two tho, to have them. Citrus is very healthy for you. Answering your last entry in saying Yes, we eventually do have to trust someone else to hopefully be honest in caring for others equipment such as your Coach. I hope all goes well there for you. We have 2 feral cats hanging around...we rarely see them but we're grateful they're busy keeping the mouse population at bay. Have a lovely week and stay healthy.
loven'hugs from up north where the air is cooling off again. We are supposed to drop into the 20's by the end of the week. Brrrr season.
