Day 40 of 365 days in the community garden

Large thorny stem on a citrus tree - watch your young citrus bushes for spiny, thorny stems growing strongly up through the rest of the plant - this is the rootstock growing and the entire stem needs to be removed right to the ground, otherwise you will end up with a thorny plant that is not the original one you wanted.

"Gardens, scholars say, are the first sign of commitment to a community. When people plant corn they are saying, let's stay here. And by their connection to the land, they are connected to one another." Anne Raver
