    I planted 14 lemon trees and 4 more avocado trees today. Also planted a few more grape cutting I started this Spring and they took off like crazy!
    I started the lemon trees from seed and the avocado trees from grafts. They all took off strong once they formed roots. WOOHOOOO!

    I sat down and put together an order of $1,000 worth of fruit, nut, berries...plants and trees, I didn't order but it has to count for something right? LOL

    I've got room for one more probably peach tree, and can't decide if I should pull another and replace, it is lame and sick looking. Wish I had room for more. I could pant at ranch, but my hand just doesn't get growing anything, and needing water.

    I, like many people on this forum I'd imagine, wish they had the time, land, and wherewithal to do what has been described in this thread. Thank you for sharing your process Cammy. I've copied it down and out of this thread for future use. While you were off grafting stuff, I finally managed to grow two dozen potatoes but only after I managed to contain my FIL's panache for over watering everything multiple times a day with his Rain One irrigation system. Sure hope it doesn't hit the fan anytime soon because the large family garden didn't fare so well due to the over watering and in-laws reluctance to trim a stinking tree. Just keep moving forward and solving problems I guess.
