If your tree produces sixty fruits each year then thats about 25 cents per fruit not counting the water bill. It would seem your solution is far cheaper.
Yes, I always think of ways how I can grow my trees in the most cheap ways that I can. And to me when you say admirably frugal way, I just had to smile because you hit me right in the head.
And thanks for all the good info you are giving us.
