I have always been fascinated with historic ephemera. The links below are a collection of pictures or drawings of fruit, herbs and other miscellaneous flora from a century ago or older. It’s Monday and a little decompression is always in order. These images should help. Enjoy!
My tree is loaded this year! They are exactly what I wanted my tangerine tree to be, although they aren’t as sweet as they could be. Other than that, I love that the skin almost falls off and there are NO SEEDS!
I bought this tree three years ago and it was called a citrus cocktail because there were five different kinds of tangerines grafted on to the main trunk, but the Kishu has become dominant and I’m pretty happy about that.
I heard a weird popping sound the other night and couldn’t figure out what it was until I took my morning garden walk yesterday.
I’ve had this Elephant’s Foot AKA Pony Tail palm (Beaucarnea recurvata) for about 34 years. The last time I repotted it was four years ago. How’s this for the power of nature?! This was the fourth pot that this plant has split over the last 12 years so I think this monster’s next destination will be in the ground.
