Ian saw my post about mineola oranges (my favorite fruit) and said that he had a mineola tree that he grew from the seed of an orange he bought in a vegetable shop.
I asked him to send me pictures and here they are!
Check it out. Pretty amazing. I never would have thought to do that. Granted, I have no earth about to plant things, but still. Pretty cool that you did that Ian, and I am jealous of your garden.
There’s a picture of one of the flowers from the tree below. No fruit yet he said, but we expect pictures should an orange ever appear!
Speaking of gardens, I finally went on the Highline yesterday, both before and after a party celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Interactive Telecommunications Program and NYU. (That’s where I went to grad school.) The Highline is a run of old elevated railroad tracks along the west side of Manhattan. After that line shut down, over decades the tracks become overgrown with local vegetation, weeds mostly I guess, but it was beautiful. It’s now an elevated park.
