Title: Fruit party?
Post by: spaugh on June 22, 2022, 10:53:44 AM
Anyone in san diego area want to do one of these again?  Ive been extremely busy with house projects and homeschooled 1 kid through 1st grade this year.  Things are finally almost settling down and I have time to relax a bit if you guys want to have a get together we can make that happen.  Maybe early August?  Let me know if these enough interest.

I may be coming down to SD for other reasons in the near future, but maybe will line up. I'm thinking of arranging one of these for Central Coast at some point too.

LOL, even after another 11 years, you'll still be busy! :)   As a parent I now kind of know what my parents had to deal with, kids never grow up and house projects are forever!

One of these days, too bad I didn't find this forum before COVID when I was travelling down to San Diego monthly for work!

Iíll definitely try to make it, work permitting.  I work 6 days a week now, sometimes 7 days so I probably wonít be able to bring the juice because i usually prep everything the day before but I have no free time anymore. I should have some figs, Dragonfruit and maybe some other random stuff. I made the best tasting Jaboticaba jam using Chrisís (Truly Tropical) recipe and itís amazing. I would like to see what others think about it!

Post by: simon_grow on June 29, 2022, 10:49:10 AM
Saturday works best for me so July 30 or August 13. Leos remembrance is on August 6 so I also wouldnít have been able to make it on that day.

Yeah, I need to take a break. Seeing some friends, eating fruit and talking about trees is the best way for me to unwind.

You guys still up for this?  I dont have much fruit this time.  Ive got some reed avocados, maybe a few peaches left and some dragonfruits.  Its hard to time it for when the fruit is ready to cut. 

Title: Re: Fruit party?
Post by: spaugh on July 20, 2022, 02:47:18 PM
Well I will assume a few of you are still coming and put something together.  Im going to start picking avocados now. 

Ill be here on July 30th Saturday morning if you guys wanna come, come on over.
Title: Re: Fruit party?

Post by: SHV on July 21, 2022, 10:24:21 AM
Unfortunately, the 30th falls on some business travel for me so I wonít be able to make it. 
Would love to connect for mango tasting this year.  I have several new seedling mangos that are producing including a first time Carrie seedling that is loaded.

Zands I havent seen a doctor in over 25 years when I broke my kneecap off.  Had that kneecap sitting up on my thigh and my knee swelled up like a softball.  Spent the night in the hospital and had surgery the next day.  I was trying to hold out but at 3am the pain got to me.  I rang the bell and nurse came and told me to roll over and she injected my with morphene in my butt and laughed at me.  Thats the last time I took a shot.   ::)

Hi Brad,

Wish we could make it, but no days off for us until at least the end of summer.  Hope you guys have a great time.  We just picked some Reeds last week because the squirrels have started to go after them, is it still early for them?  Thought I remembered you saying Aug/Sept was best time to harvest.

Post by: simon_grow on July 31, 2022, 04:07:06 PM
It was another great fruit tasting yesterday and there was so much leftover fruit. The ladies happened to stay home this time but Brads wife was there to keep us in check.

Itís amazing how fast everything grows at Brads place and his trees are looking beautiful. I was really impressed with the growth his Yangmei put on and it has definitely established and acclimated to the intense heat and sun up in the foothills of Poway.

His Lychee trees appear to double in size every time I visit and his Annonas and Avocados growing like gangbusters as well.

Looks like you had a nice small tasting event Brad, cool how rare fruit circles happen, I see from pic's a dude I know from CRFG Dennis Shamad (sp.?) what a small world. If I'm ever down that way will have contact you to check out your place. 8)
