New Season = New Life


Thursday 13 March, 2014 by Uncle Spike

The new season is heralded by so many ‘new’ things around the farm. Everywhere you look the trees are either in full blossom, have new shoots, new leaves or flowers budding.

The olive trees are getting ready to flower within the next few weeks. It all starts with tiny weeny little round buds. Many will be lost, that’s nature, but for now the trees look full.




Plum trees however are much further ahead, and are all well in flower now, displaying a sea of brilliant white. 




Meanwhile, the clementine and orange trees are full of little green leaf shoots and tiny flower buds.




But for a few of the tangerine and orange trees, it’s that weird time when they have new growth as well as fruit hanging there.




Similarly, the winter lemon trees still have a few fruit left on them, but they are more advanced than the other citrus trees, and are just about to flower once again.
