Laaz , Sour Orange,Juanita, changshou, Miyagawa seeds, they all came from you, unfortunately they are used for rootstock. None of my trees has died using them. How did I managed to make 30 trees out of them, well there they are. All my trees are grafted, it sure helps.
Some of my trees are being trained to get ready for winter storage.



Winter storage.

Luak, for container trees, your trees are getting quite tall .  You are doing a good job with them.   In the past we have seen pictures of your winter storage room.   Doing well.

Always nice to get encouragement from senior members. Btw Laaz, i live on a one of kind clear lake, Beaverlake and have created large fishbeds, consist of small and large trees, a lot of fish there, don't need my boat at all.
Fresh fish, no problem, any time, any day. My Meyer lemon is used more often now, Santa Teresa are coming on line now, sionwood from Millet. Already have fruit on them, not bad for 2017 winter graft. Need mild lemon for mild tasting fish.

Yep! Laaz, on your old forum my username was Boneyard (container forum).did,t know much then, still don’t.
Laaz, you got to be kidding, hope the juice doesn’t look like that. Nobody would eat my sautéed fish.

Trees look great, Bob! As always 😊. How does the Changshou taste - like a regular kumquat or sweeter?
