The People Next Door Have a Lime Tree

We have the nicest neighbors and yes, I am missing that tree big time! They told us just to help ourselves and we wanted to return the favor. This year, we had planned on planting an orange tree and an grapefruit tree! Unfortunately, because of the weather, it's not going to happen because we won't be there!! On the other hand, we really don't know when the best time to plant the trees anyway. Now that I think about it, there is a lawn crew that take care of the property, maybe we should just ask them to do it. If you could plant two new trees on your property, what kind would they be??

No citrus for us here in Manitoba but we do have 4 apple trees and lots of wild plums and cherry trees thanks to the previous owners. When we moved here, we had no idea what would grow here. Apparently, more than we expected! Darling daughter grabbed all of the apples and we will have hard cider come next summer. Had no idea how long the process would take!

We have a dwarf apple tree that looks hilarious with all the snow that we have. We should take a photo of it and say that the tree is 30 feet high and mostly buried in all the snow! We have sour cherry trees, that we haven't quite figured out what to do with!
