SkyWatch Friday - just a little woodpecker in a tangle of old branches left over from our cold winter. These little guys managed to successfully trim the dead branches from three of these trees. If only we could train them to pick up after themselves : )
Fertilizer Friday (and NaBloPoMo although I've missed two posts this month)
Longans and lemons - we have been sampling longans for a while but they need just a little more time. The lemons are getting large. We have been picking up tons of windfall limes rather than picking the ones that are still growing. Unfortunately, I cannot even see the ground under the lemon tree so if there are any windfalls, they're turning into fertilizer! Yesterday I spent a bit of time zesting and squeezing the limes. I mixed the juice with some water and made ice cubes, and I put the zest in my dehydrator and made dried lime zest for future use. Recycling - that's what NaBloPoMo-Green is all about this month. The best part is when the citrus fruit is all gone, you can still use the leaves for cooking.
