|Night Winter Sky from my backyard|
It has been a while since the last garden update. Garden has been neglected a bit but seems to be doing well on its own.
The one citrus plant that was healthy but has yet to bloom is blooming in full force. I did some estimation and we might have 55 limes when it is done this season. Unfortunately it is falling to the same disease as all the others. I have applied some proactive fertilizer (see the brown water on the leaves). The hope is that I can keep it healthy enough for it to fight the sickness off itself. I haven’t found a product that will treat whatever this is that is slowing killing my citrus plants.

|Grape vine is still dormant|

We are happy to have our fresh dill back.
Hopefully we won’t lose our blueberries again this year. Have not had luck with them the past two years.
My husband has chopped up our christmas tree. It is supposed to be used for mulch but I might end up composting/throwing it out because it is in the way.
My late fall project is growing in nicely. I replaced one of the gardens with sod and a lavender sensory garden. The grass is green as can be but the lavender is slow to grow.
The lavender is quite beautiful up close though.
Next up some tomatoes, citrus and hopefully blueberry crops in the spring.
