MustbNuts - Great to see your roses!! I especially love your Mini Mouse and your seedling!!! How big are the blooms on your seedling? Is it going to be a climber? Maybe you could hybridize Mini Mouse with your seedling? Pretty cool how you're so into hybridizing!! I've got to try again next year.

I like that seedling as well. It seems to do well in my climate and yes, it seems to be a climber. Crossing it with Mini is something I plan to do next spring and see what I get (if anything) Smiling

I do like it a lot. Been looking at the cameras up there. It has been snowing all day and really seems to be coming down this evening. Stay warm and dry up there!

No, just watching on the internet the snow coming down up there. I was hoping to see some northern lights but it was snowing instead. The other night the northern lights were strong. The sky had clouds but the green shown through and the whole place looked green--green cloudy sky and green earth in the middle of the night. It was amazing!

It was in the 80's today here with showers. When I took the trash cans out tonight at 7:30 pm it was 81 degrees in my garage! It should not get cold here (which is in the freezing zone at night) until the middle of November. Sometimes it is earlier. I am hoping it holds off so I don't have to protect my citrus trees.

Mustbnuts - I can't imagine having citrus trees!!! It's like you're on a different planet than I am on. Hilarious! Yes, green is a pretty typical color for northern lights. The other colors are the exception.

Yes, I can pretty much go and pick key limes anytime I want. I also grow variegated lemons (they are yellow and green striped have pink flesh and juice!), yuzu, Australian Finger Limes, Blood Oranges and Golden Nugget (my favorite!) mandarins (other than Sumo mandarins--which I can't get a plant due to copyright unfortunately).

It never occurred to me that there are different varieties ofo limes/lemons, etc. but of course there would be. What do you do with all that fruit? I mean...one can only use a few limes/lemons???

The limes I use on a daily basis. The Yuzu's ripen at once and I tend to make Yuzu marmalade with them. Yuzu is often used in ponzu sauce in Asian cooking. They should be ripening soon.

Australian Finger Limes look just like green fingers. They are not juicy but have a pulp or caviar as they call it. You can sprinkle them on various foods but I like growing it for the novelty. It also acts as a great barrier. The spines on the thing are small but they catch you and hurt.

The spines on the Yuzu, I swear that you could do needlepoint with them. They are huge and very, very sharp. Yuzu also can survive below freezing temps (down to 15--25 degrees), so it is nice not to have to cover a plant in winter if I don't have to.

My lemon tree is young and I don't have lemons on it yet (it was a replacement for a former variegated lemon and a Myer lemon). Neither has my Mandarin. My orange also has not bloomed and produced fruit yet either. Last year for it. I threatened it and my Mandarin that they would go if they didn't start to do something! Both have taken off this year. Those Mandarins are just plain good eating! So, so sweet. The blood oranges I use in salads, cakes, etc., so I can't wait to have them produce. I heard the nursery that I purchased them from (and others in the past) changed their root stock. I can tell a big difference between their trees in the past compared to now. Very slow to produce and I have lost several, unfortunately. I won't be using them in the future.

The only thing I've ever used limes for is for avocados. And I never use lemons. Guess I could switch up my diet to be more healthy.

Thanks Jim!

Carol, I use citrus in everything! Salad, salad dressing (try dressing a salad with lemon juice and olive oil--delicious!). I slice lemons and place them on turkey thighs in my slow cooker and it gives a wonderful taste to the thighs. I just made a pie using fresh plucots, pecans, lime juice, spices, etc. It came out delicious! Oh, yea, I had a little rum sauce added to it as well. I may make this one for the fair next year.

Mustbnuts - I can see that I am a total rube about citrus! So the dressing would be how much lemon juice to 1/2 cup of salad dressing? Or do you have another measurement? I've never heard of plucots...going to look it up. I'm back (that was fast, wasn't it?)...it's a hybrid between an apricot and a plum. Interesting...wish I could taste one. You sound like you are an amazing baker!! Do you have a delicious pie crust recipe that you'd care to share? It's okay if it's a family recipe, and you don't want to share.

Ah, you are sweet. My pie crust recipe is indeed a secret but it is a great recipe! It is all my own after conducting a lot of research on pie crust and what makes them flaky and tender, along with trial and error. I have some legendary fails that the bottom of my oven could tell you about.

OK for salad dressing--most people like a ratio of either 1 part citrus (vinegar--whatever) to 2 parts oil or a 1 to 4 part recipe. Me, I like more acid and less oil but that is me. Most people don't. So go with what you like generally. I would add a little garlic, salt and pepper to the dressing. It can be as easy as squeezing some lemon juice on a salad and then a drizzle of very good olive oil.

My oatmeal pie! An old timey southern recipe. Folks made this pie when they could not afford pecans. It is really, really good!

I got some pictures from the fair and I hope no one minds seeing them. I think I have stated on here that we grow a lot of the grapes for the wines made in Napa. We also have a few vineyards here as well. Here are some of the grapes that we grow for that market.

Here is some stone fruit (including plucots!)

Now the next pictures are from the kid's building. School kids built these things! I find it amazing!
Anyone want a fire pit for their patio?

Can you imagine cutting out all those animal figures and then welding them together? As I have said, Amazing!

How about a trailer or a bar-b-q?

Most of these kids will use what they have made or sell them for $ for their upcoming college education.

That pie does look wonderful!!! I do have a pie crust recipe after trying different recipes for YEARS!!! Finally, I have one that works. I've used a few things I've read from different places...like freezing the butter a little, then grating it. And using ice water. But my daughter still likes store crust better. I don't...but she does. LOL

I was planning on starting having cabbage salad again...I use chicken stock flavored ramen noodle packages and then I use vinegar/oil and the seasoning. I'll buy a lemon and try that!

I've gotten into quilting! So it's nice to see those quilts...although I'm not good enough yet to try to do a pattern. I look at that and go wow!! And I hand stitch everything while I watch t.v. I hire someone to quilt the backing on and do the edges.

Here's one of mine:
