Fall is here!
|After mowing everything down and of course the turkeys show up!|

Another task that I have been putting off was to prune one of my grapefruit trees. It has gotten really tall and was actually touching the oak tree branches above it. I put it off because if you have never had citrus trees you have no idea that they have long, sharp thorns. When you trim them they fight back and yes I was scraped and bleeding. You can see below where I was almost done and only had this last, central branch to cut off. I had to use the long pole saw and I was working on it for 20 mins trying to get through the wood.
|Last branch is taunting me!|
|This saw is stuck!|
My 4 basil plants are still going strong so I cut a bunch of it and gave it away to a couple of friends.
|Basil coming out of my ears!|
|Poor tomatoes never stood a chance...|
|Garlic is in and hopefully it will grow as well as last time.|
