It's so dry here. I can't remember the last time it rained. My trees are all small though. My grapefruit and orange tree still have green fruit. I picked them the last time a storm came in but they never ripened so I guess I'll leave them alone if a storm comes in this year.
I haven’t heard the local weather guy mention the brutal high pressure that has been hanging over Texas all summer. Has it moved off of us? It didn’t seem quite as hot yesterday as it has been. I can’t believe that I am getting used to the heat, I have lived here all my life but I never have gotten accustomed to the kind of heat we have had this summer.
Citrus fruit has remarkable staying power on the tree during high winds. The winds would have to either blow down the tree or denude the leaves before you will lose your fruit. On the other hand, avocado trees are terribly brittle, and the fruit drops in TS winds.
