I wanna share with you how I just saw a little plant before in my garden which I knew was not weed. It was probably one of the fruit seeds my father-in-law just throw on our garden after eating. I was right when I thought its from the citrus family. Cause it looks like one. I was just not sure then what it was. I googled and learned its leaf was that of a Pomelo tree or what we call "suha" here in our local dialect. I transplanted it then took care of it so well fertilizing it only organically and mulching it with dry leaves. Over the years it has grown into big tree. And just last year on its fifth year. I gave me fruits already, not one but four beautiful fruits. It was the sweet round kind. And again, we have just harvested and eaten two big fruits again. I was very happy because I frequently search on google how long does a fruit tree bear its fruit when it is planted from seed and most of the ones I've read says it could be 10 years or more. I would say this could probably be the effect of my organic gardening. Fruit trees will give you fruits earlier than usual.
This was the first fruit I have harvested on the very first tree I have ever planted. Such a nice feeling.
The leaves of my Atis trees came to view but I wanna show you how big my tree has been.
There are four other fruits on the tree now. For passionate gardeners like I am, it is so much fun just looking up and seeing the literal fruits of your own labor. The wonders of nature.
I placed fallen leaves from our yard including some plants I pulled off on the base of the tree. Under those mulches (overdosed I must admit) I put some composted chicken manure for its nitrogen source. I do this all year round. I honestly don't know the proper care for this tree but it continually gives us fruits since last year so I guess I'm doing things right. Anyway, this mulches eventually turns into a rich gardener's black gold (compost) after a few months or a year.
