Babies of the Mango Kind

Second year (dwarf) mango, fruit on again.  Last year we got one from the tree (which technically I should have pulled off as a flower but I so wanted to see if they would actually grow).  This year I hope some of them make it to full size.  It's a little tree still but we feed it, and when the fruit come on, we'll put a crate underneath them to take the weight off the tree, like we did last year.

and plums.  yay for home grown plums.  Yay for home grown anything, really.  Beyond delicious!

Our trees look like that too. I am hopeful! Mangoes are bi-ennial and this is the good year, so if we can get enough water to them over this very dry spring, we may be looking at a good season. So happy. Love mangoes.
