    Pictures of the INSIDE of your copper sink please!

    Q

    Sam, the way my son lets OJ and acidic foods sit in there? lol. no. it doesn't quite look like that pic everyday. I'm the only one who takes care of it, and lately it's just not that important. It looks similar to the pic, but a tad darker in spots. some spots get a green patina, but they are easily scrubbed clean. I love my sink. It's 14 gauge, hand made in Mexico. (do not get the ones from China), came from CopperSinksOnline. it was on sale and I got a great deal on it. Use the protective wax religiously and always rinse down any acidic foods that may sit there. Use a scrubby pad w/cleanser to take off any tarnish. If I do that, it looks exactly like the picture I posted. It stands up to everything and doesn't scratch, ding, chip, mar or anything else. you just have to scrub it and use the wax! Or not. even if you don't, it still doesn't look that bad.

    Sea Sea, I was a little skeptical about getting that outdoor water gadget but I think someone on the Automatic Washer forum had one, so I thought what the heck. It seems to be working ok. I have 3 hots and 3 colds coming off the main. the plumber wasn't alarmed. I keep the main valve off when not in use just in case the system fails. So far George is the only one that has shown his setup! Thanks George, now how about you others? What do you like about your setups? how do you store things? do you have fun deco in the area?

    Pixie mandarin


    Minneola tangelo, it’s holding 6 fruit this year.


    Upside down Meyer lemon, holding about 150+\- fruit

    Tango mandarin #2


    Key lime #2


    Another upside down citrus, this is the Cara Cara holding about a dozen fruit.


    Tango mandarin #1, every branch is loaded with large heavy fruit.


    Key lime #1


    Moro blood orange almost 2 years in ground now and it’s 8’ tall and holding about a dozen fruits


    Rio red grapefruit holding fruits from last year and this year

    Jeanwedding I’m in zone 9B, my user name used to have that attached along with my location which is Indio, CA. I was not trying to make anyone jealous, merely trying to be part of the forum, Steve had posted for November updates and did not specify that it had to be container or out of zone growing only. If I offended you or anyone else I sincerely apologize I was not trying to upset anyone.

    Gardenweb citrus forum is for everyone interested in citrus, some throw in flowers, some, like me throw in different kind of fruits, some express dislike what I write some think I am not intelligent enough. I envy that you live in a nice state that you can grow better stuff than I do, but I am going to stay where I reside, my place offer me a whole lot of other things than a bunch of citrus tree’s. NO problem with me, you go guy, I like good looking tree’s, maybe I can copy them you are showing.

Love all y'all.. were all brothers and sisters in gardening. We gardeners share our abundance and knowledge. pass it on

    Evan, the reason you having problems with Houzz picture positioning is because the way you hold your camera, taking pictures holding your camera vertical instead horizontal, because your trees are tall. If you take pictures, standing back a bit more you be ok.

    Houzz think you screw up taking pictures, so they correct it for you.

    The reason I put text on my pictures is because so I know the pictures has been “treated for web purposes “. The old fashion way, remember!! Now it is “ The Houzz” way. 2020!q


    I think Houzz fix the problem, I didn’t have to downsize today, maybe it last a day!

    Steve, your NZL looks great. Its growth habit reminds me of mine. Evan, so nice to see you around here again! I always really enjoy seeing pics of your beautiful trees. You must give tons of fruit away during harvest time. Bob, your grow rooms looks great and all that fruit! Those look close to ready, but I'd wait a bit longer perhaps. I will post pics soon of mine. They are still outside, but will be finally coming Thursday morning because it is supposed to go down to 32. I'm getting the house ready and will do a final spray of the trees as well before bringing them in. I also have to dig up all the lights out of the basement...ugh! We are still enjoying the many miho wase mandarins that my tree produced this year. It's the first time that I have really enjoyed the delicious fruit and that there have been plenty of them. Looking forward to coming years with that tree.

    Next spring I’ll be Freddy Kruger, have cut down several peach and plums, pluots. Next spring persimmons and pears be shortened. I share with all forum members If they live in the vesinity. Just came back from downhill with two more buckets, that makes 14.

    If you have a dehydrator or two you can make candy for a few years. Laura, you got any idea’s, now. What about my citrus, no problems there, just enough to get a idea which one to keep.

    blood oranges and Meyer lemons.
    can you spot the parrot?? Lol. He’s the newest memos the family. He likes the trees but has to be watched or he’ll chew up the branches.

  • Mikhail (Bay Area/East Bay - 9b)

    I do not have a lot of pics but my inground trees are loaded this season. However, my poor little Meiwa is barely holding fruits. NZL and Fukushu always produce a lot. I decided not to have fruits on my Mandarin trees (Tango, Satsuma Wase) and ST this season. I hope it will help those trees to grow faster.


    This is my Fukushu (1-2 weeks ago):


    One of my NZL branches. I will probably remove some fruits to make it easier for the tree.



    poncirusguy6b452xx thanked Mikhail (Bay Area/East Bay - 9b)
  • Laura LaRosa (7b)

    Mikhail, beautiful trees! I have to thank you for inspiring me to give my NZL another shot. A few days ago we harvested two ripe lemons - one maybe a tad over-ripe, but my daughter liked both. I preferred the tangier one. I definitely will keep the tree as I suspect the fruit will only improve with age. Enjoy your harvest!

    Laura, those two birds finally feel at home, like in the tropics. It’s been a long time seeing this beautiful for them. They will feel at home.

  • evdesert

    Bob, that is a lot of persimmons, don’t know that I’ve ever tried one. I still can’t figure out how to rotate pics the correct way.

    laura, your house looks like a forest with all those trees, it’s awesome.

    mikhail the progress on your trees is fantastic, they look great!

    my vpe started pushing new growth, I love the pink tinge the leaves get.

    Evan, the easiest way to shoot, just keep your camera in wide position. If you shoot the other way, Houzz keep correcting and lay down your pictures.

    I have send a bunch of persimmon sion wood to addresses in California in exchange with stuff I want. Things have changed a bit now, the Greening Decease.

    Tree ripened persimmons are hard to beat, if you know what variety to grow.

  • Mikhail (Bay Area/East Bay - 9b)

    NP, Laura. Hopefully, your NZL will be better next year! Nothing is guaranteed, obviously, but NZL definitely deserves another chance :) Such a cool and unsual tree.


    For example, my Meiwa had tasteless fruits last year. Actually, they tasted soapy. No aroma, nothing. I know that many people love Meiwas and I am planning on giving my little tree at least two more harvests to prove itself.

    poncirusguy6b452xx thanked Mikhail (Bay Area/East Bay - 9b)
  • Bob

    The members growing citrus from California in particular should be able to give the zone pushers a good

    evaluation how citrus should taste like. A lot of us keep buying the ” wrong “ tree’s, than either regraft them or get rid of them. Most of us have access to the best varieties. I for one have just as good stuff as the California members. As far as taste goes, they have the advantage but than I might come in in second place, which is ok with me.

    If you like lemons, having 7 different varieties, than find out you really only need one or two, that to me is “ learning the hard way”, same with everything else btw.

    I decided to get rid of my lanky pink Eureka motherplant after the most recent attack by deer. It is now planted in my sister's yard, where it will either sink or swim this Winter. And if it survives, it will do much better there than in my shaded garden.
