Lov'in The Wet

What plants love all this rain? The citrus and avocados! They need the moisture to create juicy fruit, however you can see by the yellow in the foliage that it is time to fertilize them. The citrus in our area have been under siege by a number of pests. That is a sign they are a bit stressed so hopefully all this water will give them a new vigor!

Dear Sheila, What a wonderful photograph. And how fortunate you are to be able to grow citrus fruits. I so wish I could, as I wrote on a recentish posting.

I do hope that you have sufficient rainfall, but not too much!!

I hope the rain will give them what they need. That fruit is too precious to have to waste!
