Once again, guys, it is time to fertilize your citrus trees to make them happy and fruit all summer long. I know I haven’t been blogging for a while now but I thought I would be a great idea to start a reminder blog for you gardener out there to prep for May. May is the second time you would need to do that. We want fresh orange juice for the summer.
Maybe some fresh lemonade for a hot day. I love making fresh lemonade for the summer. It just hit the spot. Especially when you had spent some time gardening, not too much because it is super hot here.
I spend maybe a couple of hours just looking around, weeding if necessary, then I sit on a chair in my backyard under the patio and stared out into my garden in the heat and sip my lemonade, oh so refreshing.
Some times I stayed out so long my husband would come out just to see if I’m okay. Poor guy always worrying about me. He thinks I’m crazy to be staying out in the heat at 115° F (46.11°C). I love the heat and the outside what can I say.
Growing Citrus in the Desert
Growing citrus in the desert here isn’t that hard at all. And yes they are susceptible to getting burn but my citrus does really well here.
As you can see from the YouTube video it grows great here.
Blood Orange Citrus
We all want our citrus to fruit. I have a blood orange that still hasn’t flower or fruit. The professionals say it takes up to seven years for it to bear any. I am having my fingers crossed guys it has been 5 years. Two more years than I can see.
However, I am thinking, it might be longer or maybe never because our weather isn’t cold enough for blood oranges liking.
Temperature for blood oranges are between 55°F – 85 °F (13°C – 29°C). We got lucky this year and the temperature here dipped down to 39°F (3.89°C) but it didn’t stay for very long. It did some damages to my other vegetables but nothing major.
