56. Good luck with the citrus!
Fri Dec 23, 2022, 05:23 PM
Dec 2022

Citrus was lost here in 1989, then again in 2021. (Single digits) It regrew from the sour orange rootstock

We have lots of "sour orange" trees around town.

Protect the budgraft and area above it, so the area above the graft will regrow. We got down to 15 last night.

Peaches are hard to grow here. Not cold enough.
