Greetings from Tucson here in southern Arizona (elev 2982 feet ASL) -- Happy Holidays everybody (or as is said down here Feliz Navidad)!

This is sort of an online greeting card and the picture is from my most recent harvest from a Meyer Lemon, Pink Eureka Lemon and a Mexican Lime.

RE: Happy Holidays!

Beautiful! Do you have other citrus or fruits?

Yes, I have a lot :-)

Here is the citrus list: a dwarf Washington Navel, 1 Moro Blood Orange, 1 Star Ruby Grapefruit, 1 Valencia Orange (along with the 2 lemons and Mexican Lime).

Here is the non-citrus list: 1 Nonpareil Almond tree, 1 Texas Mission Almond Tree, 1 Royal Apricot Tree, 4 different kinds of figs (Celestial, Conadria, Osborne, and Violette de Bordeaux, 1 Santa Rosa Plum, 1 Green Gage Plum, 4 Pomegranate bushes (3 Wonderful and 1 Angel Red), 3 Sugar Cane plants (all about 8 feet tall), 1 fruiting olive, 1 Red Flame Grape, 1 Thomsen Seedless grape, and 2 Pineapple Guavas. In a large pot we have a banana tree which is about 6 feet tall, but never borne yet....I gave up on Avocado trees due to our very dry winds here which are death on them.

Happy Holidays!


PS But this list is nothing compared to Hoosierquilt's (Patty's) plantings :-).
