Wordless Wednesdays: Citrus Tree pruning in the back yard...

Real Estate Agent with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties 01238708

Wordless Wednesdays: Citrus Tree pruning in the back yard... Diane decided to prune the trees. Needless to say, she has been coordinating with our Gardner to do this. Hence, I was stuck dealing with them.

They showed up in the afternoon while I was in the middle of keeping one deal together and negotiating two otherwww.endrebarath.com deal.

Next thing I know is they are putting cut branches into the "trash" barrel after they filled the "Green Barrel."  after they left, I was trying to salvage many of the oranges. Clearly you know for future Orange Juice....

Needless to say, managed to save some but what you see here was probably 50% the rest were lost!

Hi Endre, colorful event with oranges. We love fresh juice, too. Several neighbors of ours often leave a basket of oranges or grapefruit in their driveway. We have fun with a very flavorful Meyer lemon (quite old, and starting to lose branches) and a very young blood orange tree in our yard.

Wow a Meyer lemon tree and  a blood orange tree:)) Steffy Hristova  this quote of your reminded me of ten years ago when we bought the house and keep in mind I have been a city Sliker for all my life on the east coast... I saw these limes growing in the back yard.. I took a taste and told Diane this is the best limes I ever had... so we gave the neighbors a bag full:)))) well it turned out it was the navel oranges:))Endre

A dear friend who lived north of Los Angeles had a Meyer lemon tree in his back yard, and it was just amazing when he squeezed on over a fresh salad (from his kitchen garden). You guys are so spoiled by great tasting, fresh, local produce in your part of the world.

Well I have to admit I’m jealous. We had some beautiful citrus trees years ago which were healthy and getting to the point where they were producing delicious fruit. Our area got hit with a disease that knocked out all of our trees. We were heartbroken and never planted again. I do love fresh fruit and envy those that have been able to successfully harvest each year! Enjoy!

Debe Maxwell, CRS  so funny years ago when Brian England  came to Pasadena I had a bag full of Tangerines and left it in the car.... I ended up shipping it to him.... FYI these oranges are not our best, they are the second-rate ones compared to the Navel Oranges that we are finished with.... send me your new address Endre

No, we are using it on the weekends until we Close the end of next month. We are going to miss it TERRIBLY. It's a little heart-breaking to have to leave our dream home but, our friends in town are definitely helping Ray to feel welcomed back in town. And, the buyers have invited us to visit any time. As long as Ray has his vision, we'll go back as often as they'll have us Endre Barath, Jr.

Nothing like fresh orange juice, and it looks as if you have some mandarins there as well.
