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!
Tankless Water Heater
No more shower anxiety!!! Yes, I would have to rush and rotate shower tasks due to the limited hot water. NOT ANY MORE! Now its like being at a day spa!
Why? How? Well the hot water heater turned into a bubbling fountain so it was time to replace. Ended up splurging on a tankless water heater! It’s so nice and small, it allowed me to tuck the water conditioner out of sight as a bonus!
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.
Here is the before »
They are just absolutely stunning! I have the option to do something with the old one…maybe a side table? benches for outside? The major additional cost would be the base for whatever I chose to do though…hmmm…?
More pics of it installed soon…
All without the pros! (yet!)
The bigger area will need some professional planning though!
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.

Finally, the Street Gets Repaved
I no longer live in a third world country.
Hard to believe it took 4 weeks when they worked on average 1 day per week…but wtf…it’s done so who cares!
All I know is that I can now actually park in front of the house without bottoming out my car!!!
So Dewulf came to install the completed counter and it’s too short! It’s too bad because it does look incredible…it’s a little darker than I imagined, but I think it looks great!
He was really apologetic and has graciously offered to re-pour it & said he will recycle this piece.
So, we’re going to try this again…
Well, I finally got DeWulf the “kitchen renegade” to come and get the peninsula counter ball rolling!!! Should be about 3 weeks! YAY!
Be sure to check out his portfolio, amazing stuff!!!
