Many readers asking about their fruit trees
Many calls on how to take care of your fruit trees — especially those mango and avocado babies that are in full bloom.
One caller showed me his pictures of avocado trees that he inherited when he bought his home. They were young trees about 6 to 8 feet tall with leaves and, most importantly, blossoms.
Sixty percent of the avocados grown from seed will not produce fruit. With blossoms on this man’s babies, they should give him some fruit this year and if he treats them right by pruning them this summer, and fertilizing them with bone and blood meal, they will be great producers and offer a pretty landscape as well.
My tomatoes are in, so we had fresh tomatoes the other night for supper. You can’t beat the taste of a tomato picked from the vine, wiped free of any dirt, and eaten as you continue to harvest enough for the evening meal!
