My Grapefruit Tree, All Grown Up

I trimmed the branches that were growing downward last week. It’s amazing what a difference that made. And I only lost two grapefruits. As you can see from the photo, the fruit is nice and yellow. A few of them are beginning to take on that nice pinkish hue. I wonder if there’s enough sugar in the state of Arizona to get me through those first few.
I am very proud to say that the tree survived in my care. I can’t wait to see what it does over the next couple years. As for the lemon tree, it’s more difficult to decide what to trim as there is no definitive trunk. But again I’ll give it time. And keep watering them. Maybe I’ll get more than one lemon next year. Here’s to a plant-safe winter.
