This is my personal blog, not a venue for saleable images. In fact, because it's here that I share things that are important to me with the members of the moblog community, photo quality's not my priority. Events, occasions, achievements, thoughts, trips and experiments - you'll find them all here. Contact me for the development version of my photo portfolio, for a selection of saleable images or visit my dance photography blog or my website for cuttings. And remember that all photos remain my copyright unless I've specifically said otherwise.

"Give, give, give -- what is the point of having experience, knowledge or talent if I don't give it away? Of having stories if I don't tell them to others? Of having wealth if I don't share it? I don't intend to be cremated with any of it! It is in giving that I connect with others, with the world and with the divine."

"The grand show is enternal. It is always sunrise somewhere; the dew is never dried all at once; a shower is forever falling; vapour is ever rising. Eternal sunrise, eternal dawn and gloaming, on sea and continents and islands, each in its turn, as the round earth rolls."

"The bicycle is the most civilised conveyance known to man. Other forms of transport grow daily more nightmarish. Only the bicycle remains pure in heart."

If I particularly like a fruit or vegetable or if it has got too old to eat, I'll put it in a pot on my rooftop garden.

There's not a lot of space so I'll use one pot a year. I re-use the pots and the plants will often come up several years after I've put them out. It's great fun, not least because I've completely forgoten what's there by the time it comes up.

I've done quite well out of it - got some lovely Medlar trees and it's how I get my tomato plants every year. Also the top photo is either a very sweet lemon or an even sweeter lime (with nasty thorns) and the next is a small, bitter orange that's wonderful in jam or soaked in brandy.

I know they're some kind of citrus fruit, but what are the others?

I love the idea of sweet lemons/limes :)

the first one will be ripe in a week or two. :)

I'm hoping mobloggers will help me identify the others so I know which ones to bring indoors. Not enough space for all of them :-(

Hello Dhamaka =)

I know a *little* about citrus...because there are so many hybrids sold as produce, when you plant the seed, you might not get what the original fruit was...still an orange, lime, etc., but a generation or few back in the hybrid line.
Alot of citrus do have thorns, although I think when they are hybridized they breed that out.

The small bitter oranges sound like Calamondin Oranges. I have one of these at home and they are a hardy producer. Flowering and ripening fruit at the same time. I love mine, and use the fruit in gin and tonics ;)

Citrus can not take a hardy frost, so if your temps go below freezing it is best to move them indoors. I would have a hard time picking which was coming in and which wasn't.

My favorite site for gardening info is gardenweb.com. There is a wealth of knowledge there.

ps - love all your other plant pictures...

There is a wealth of general info here although not much help with identification :)

Maybe you've planted too many things and caused cross breeding and new fruit hybids?

Dhamaka says:

Thank you Kathy for all that info - and for the reference Euphro.

Kostika, what a fun idea - I wonder what parseley and medlar would taste like

ufufu

The top one definitely derived from a tangello (tangerine). But that's a hybrid in itself.

As they say you learn something every day on moblog - this throws light on my purchase of what I thought were 2 limes (in Cyprus) and when I cut them open they were orange inside and sweeter than a lime!
