Please, please, please...

You may remember our sad little gopher ravaged orange tree.  Well, we've killed the gophers...and their offspring.  And, now we have these:

She's making a comeback.  These are Valencia oranges and the Sunset Magazine Massive Plant Book states they are summer bloomers.  Maybe in Australia, but last time I looked it's fall and these still have a few weeks to go.  There are six oranges in total on our sorry little Charlie Brown tree.

I'm foreseeing a big comeback for this guy.  In the meantime, it had better ripen those Blue Moon is waiting.


  1. Can't keep the Blue Moon waiting! That's alcohol abuse! :D

  2. That does look like a lot of oranges for a small tree! It's encouraging to see it trying so hard though. I've brought lemon trees back from the brink. Once the pests are kept at bay, with the right amount of water, and fertilizer, it's amazing how quickly they can recover. Looking forward to seeing the oranges!
