Cool I'm sure the way you have it is for future use. You don't have to worry about leaves in the pool :^) I know I'm at least 2-3 hours north of you only in La and I must be lucky to have more gulf stream cause I know we might be lucky to hit 19F once in a couple years if that? I know we have days of frezin' temps though.
I planted another Pindo today, and have 4 medjool's in my plans.. I have to get rid of 2 oaks and a 2 pines first...lol Your work looks almost complete. I'm a work in progress :^)

Great pictures! If I had that much land in the San Francisco Bay area I would be rich and eating lots of bananas!

Congrats, it really shows your effort and how much pride you take in your garden.

I just noticed a flag leaf on my big Saba. Never seen one of those bloom. Could be interesting!

It was maybe six inches when I planted it last Spring (2009). It grew to about 20 feet or so before Winter. We had 15F and 17F and long durations of cold. With no protection the entire psuedostem survived.

It started putting out pups about half way through the first summer. I've planted several and given several away since. Guess it's a "good one".

Just beautiful.... And it does make you want to start collecting palms too.
FYI have you checked your ponderosa lemon for mealybugs? They nearly did my hubby's lime tree in until I figured out what the problem was. Now it's looking great again.
