MangoDog's Doggy Days Update 061211
Well folks, it don't mean anything until it crosses the finish line - Ripening mangos I'm talking about. Doesn't matter how many cute babies you had that spurred your bubbled dreams of dripping chins - it's what stays on the plant and doesn't drop out of the race. So I've had some disappoints, as we all have had....
I've only included photos of plants that have done something since my last update May 1st. The first one is my best tree - Manila - has about 35-40 (60-65 last year)on it - but of course you can't see them all - still a good 6-7 weeks from ripening would be my best guess:
Then the Keitt with 6 nice ones, maybe half of those you can see:
The Edward, followed by the Rosiegold each have only one (Eddie had about 7 on him and Rosie about the same before they jumped ship):
ChocAnon, Glenn and Nam Doc Mai showing growth:
Lastly a picture of the maturing summer pond. Two very small mango trees at the far left and right = the new Mahachinook on the left, Glenn on the right:
