Too bad you can’t just pick and eat them!
Any suggestions on what to do???
The long side of the house has been a security concern due to its isolation, but now thanks to my friend Lesley’s dad there is a very secure and private gate in place!
No More Peeping into the Back!
I knew the bricks were dirty, but I had no idea exactly how dirty!!! Im sure this was 50+ years worth of dirt!
Dwarf Fruit Trees in Containers
So I went a little crazy … It started with the strawberries, they are doing so well. Then I have this large empty pot I wanted to put a dwarf tree in. At the nursery, I really had a hard time picking what type of tree I wanted. I ended up with a Satsuma Mandarin, which I love, but still was aching for the Meyer Lemon, with its versatility.
Then, at the hardware store, it ends up dwarf trees are on sale, so in my indecisive manner I decided to go for the Meyer Lemon, Grapefruit then threw in an Avocado for good measure. Toss in a couple inexpensive wood planters and my former trash can – junk area is now an orchard!
Dressed up the front door and also the side. Added some pots which I already had along with a nice papyrus plant in a planter Jack left. On the side, I added the blue fescue as planned. I am very happy with the results.
Got the front bed and side area done…mostly happy with it. I’m thinking the large succulents in the front bed should be lower to the ground, maybe I should have got these other ones that are brighter green and more like ground cover.
I’m thinking of getting a tall planter for the door entry and putting the tall succulents there instead, then getting the ones I think I should have gotten for the bed.
