Get this orange tree a cape
Citrus trees are kind of like super-heroes. It doesn't really matter what kind of shit they manage to get themselves into, you can rest assure they'll figure a way out of it before the credits roll. Such traits might make a boring and predictable movie, but by god it makes for a great addition to a veggie garden.
Its been a good six months since I last banged on about this orange tree, which was badly damaged by a marauding band of scale insect. Since then the entire core of the tree dropped its leaves and packed up shop - and so I was forced to cut out a stack of dead branches a few months back. Now, after a late summer growth spurt, green is shooting out all over place, just like you knew it would.
