December Garden

I planted three satsuma trees in the spring. And although they are very small, they have fruit on them. My neighbor is selling hers in her stand, so I took a look in the back, and sure enough, they were ripe. Winter in Southern California is not so very cold, but my gardening has slowed. I picked an avocado to see if it would ripen off the tree. The passion fruit vine is making a comeback after being choked by the banana trees. Oh, the banana trees… my gardener recommends removing them all, as they are wreaking havoc in the area, but they are so pretty, and hides my garage… we will have to think on this one.
