oranges

The world’s smallest orange tangerine tree (the fact that it pretty much hasn’t grown at all in the 2+ years I’ve had it probably has something to do with the fact that I’m terrible at remembering to fertilize it) produced a whopping seven pieces of fruit this year.

Growing food is so satisfying.

edit: looking back to last year (this is why I keep a blog) apparently the yield is actually up from five, and the tree does look at least slightly larger. Maybe next year we can hit 10, i.e. the amount of these things I eat in a day.

  1. it’s been snowing for like three days here and is going to snow for four more. can’t even begin to tell you how jealous i am of the fact you can grow citrus! looks awesome. :)

  2. I see all dark green, healthy looking leaves… a sure sign of citrus tree happiness.
    Hope this year is a good one. Glad to see more posts in 2010 — that’s great!
