People's Court for mango
« on: August 19, 2023, 08:09:03 PM »
Has anyone ever ended up in the People's Court over mango tree? My wife just noticed that I dug up a 6 ft Graham tree and traded it for a sizable White Pirie. Try to explaining that we have to many West Indian profile trees and need to diversify. To someone from the Caribbean this is very serious and the smile on my face did not help my case. If she walks around to the back side of the house and notice that Pickering is gone that i traded for a similar size Carrie tree. I may end up in front of Judge Judy. Since she is a woman I will definitely probably get the chair.
Has anyone else had their spouse get hot blood over a tree😡

The only thing I ever heard from my wife is you have too many effing trees.  The place looks like a jungle.  Of course, it never looked like a jungle.  That was the old house.  Now I have to deal with an HOA board that says we don't allow new fruit trees!  (Far worse.)

Mayhap the answer could be as a way to to thwart the HOA to plant smaller/dwarf fruiting trees that can be kept trimmed into hedges or topiaries (and still give you fruit) so the HOA won't realize it, or at least not until it's too late!

Same thing, "It looks like a jungle out there!"

My response, "Awesome, I love the jungle!"

Pickering for a Carrie? Yikes! Love Pickering 👍🏼

Speaking of HOA, Im seriously thinking of too working my MAHA mango tree , no matter how hark I cut it back , it just wants to grow vigorously!

My plan is to top work it with , Pickering , Sugar loaf , OS. And maybe M4
The trick id how to time it right , when yo cut it back and start grafting onto the water shoots 👍🏼

I'm not allowed to get rid of our old Haden. It would get very ugly if I did. She cleans all the Jackfruit so I guess she's earned all the work the Haden requires.
