Who knows something about fruit trees?

Post  yellowhorse7 on January 14th 2013, 8:54 pm

So I have 8-10 orange and tangerine trees that are very thorny. They appear to be young, maybe about 3 feet high. They have color (green) leaves and appear to be healthy? I have read that a fruit tree will go back to its seedling state if under nourished and not taken care of. Any thoughts ?

Have Nike the cow farmer to send you some cow paddies to spread around them and keep them watered good and watch the fruit grow Twisted Evil

Bruno you picked pecans? you are the brightest marble in the bag are you? to collect pecans you go to Walmart get El Cheapo King sheets a couple pair, lay them under the tree and climb up in a ways and shake the Hell out of it.... and you have to pick nothing everything that is ready will fall to the sheets.... for that tid bit it cost you 100# of Pecans lol I use to Live in Sonora tx and we got 5 to 600 lbs every year much better than store bought....

That's about how tall the bamboo is behind my shop.

The story I heard was back before I bought the house the previous owner built the shop much taller than it was supposed to be & the neighbor behind him then got pissed off & planted long rows of the stuff so he didn't have to look at the shop out his back door. Then the stuff grew like crazy & spread everywhere like wildfire. Shocked

Bamboo is great if kept in check.
