Re: What did you harvest today (other plants)?

How did they taste? How long did it take them to mature from flower to fruit?

Re: Southern Weather Forecast

Yep! I'm in N.C. too--the foothills. It's supposed to be in the twenties here. I'm not looking forward to the cold. I lost a lot of plants last winter. I don't want a repeat performance.

Re: Citrus help needed.

Thanks for the info! The plant has been in full sun since May. I'll leave it in full sun until the temps dip to frost and freeze. Sounds like I'll have tangerines for Thanksgiving.

Re: Dragonfruit.

O.K., so how are Abnshrek's buds and flowers doing? Also, I watched some of my DF new growth. Sometimes I can see tiny droplets of a sticky, sap-like substance. Perhaps this is what the ants are...

Gonna Hurt My Cat

My potted 3-feet-tall dwarf cavendish has been outside for a month now. It has not been doing anything--no pups, only one leaf, not dying but not really living. While I was checking the PH level...
