Since I finished processing the last pink grapefruit (it was delicious) harvested in December 2011 and also juiced the last lemons harvested in December, I updated my Tree Summary spreadsheet closing out 2011.
Three grapefruit and one lemon harvested last month have not been eaten yet.
All in all, 2011 was not a good year for my trees, except for the satsuma and grapefruit.
Pecans: Drought and drought-starving critters thwarted my pecan harvest.
Drought thwarted my peach harvest in 2011.
Drought negated my pears in 2011.
The three pomegranate are still too young to produce.
The lemons were hurt by the record-setting freezing temperatures in Feb 2011. I ended up with nearly one liter of lemon juice. I need to check the retail price of bottled lemon juice. I was using 2007 prices for the 2011 estimate for lemon juice.
One lime tree died from the freezing temps in Feb. 2011, the other was severely hurt but is recovering.
The blood orange is still young.
The young navel orange produced it's first fruit in 2011.
The drought hurt the baby fig trees.
The young mineola tangelo is presently putting out a lot of new growth.
The banana tree(s) never completely froze back this winter so far. One has turned into at least three btw.
The avocado is still too young to produce.
The bay laurel is the "new tree on the block," received as a gift for Christmas.
The spotlight was on the satsuma tangerines last year. They all are getting big enough to produce quite a bit of fruit.
I did produce 61 citrus fruits in 2011.
Now if I can sell $115.91 peaches this year, I'll be "in the green."
