Beginning to look like Spring

I know Boston is still covered in snow and it’s freezing in most of the country, but it’s beginning to look a lot like spring here in Houston! I thought I would share a few snap shots of our suburban orchard and all our trees.

I always love seeing the trees we planted start their annual process of growth. It’s really satisfying after how much work we’ve put in.

We’ve gotten to enjoy probably 200-300 oranges, fresh off the tree this year, which has been awesome and probably saved us $500 in fruit, not to mention how much better they taste and how much healthier they are. Hopefully this will be the year we start seeing major production of peaches, and decent harvests of plums and figs.

      Thanks my friend. Your back yard looks pretty incredible as well.

      Are you custom ordering the mass amount of awesome graphics on your site?

    Thats a LOT of oranges! Wow…good on you for planting them and enjoying the fruits. Lovely pictures!

    Still looks very much like winter here in Canada 🙁 Cant wait until Apr when all this snow melts and we start seeing some greenery.

      The orange tree (which was there when I bought the house) gives me hope for all the young ones I’ve planted that don’t do much yet. Hopefully we start seeing some production off our ours this year.

      We definitely get spring early on the Gulf Coast. Even most of the South is still covered in snow. It’s one of the best parts of living. here. Most of the winter is between 50-70 degrees. You can spend a lot of weekends in shorts. Crappy part is it’s 100 and 100% humidity all summer. My AC bill is awful.
