September/October Garden 2011

Wow, I completely forgot about my monthly garden post for September.  The weather was so hot that I literally did not go out in my garden for the month of September  – out of sight, out of mind I guess.  So, I am combining the two months.  I am featuring my front grove.  The valencia oranges are ripe and ready for picking, they are very nice for juicing.  Most of our valencias are the original trees planted nearly a hundred years ago.  They are supposed to be one of the sweeter, better tasting kinds around:

And here are some Gold Nuggets that I planted – they will be ready in spring:

And, just thought I’d share, here is a photo of the Red Yucca pods.  They are one of my favorite plants in my garden.  When they are in bloom, the hummingbirds always make an appearance:
