    I moved the orange seedlings outside. They may only be suitable as root stock, but I have to keep them alive until they either flower and set fruit, or obviously don't - then I learn grafting. Soaking some lemon seeds now.

      This year's orange seedlings are doing well, all the ones that are still in plastic cups, and the first two that I thought might've died are up again. They're all getting direct sun for most of the day, and being watered every 3 or 4 days.

      I have 3 blueberries now, the first two have gone into modest pots to allow them a little time to recover before I look for larger containers. The third one was on a separate order, and was pretty sorry looking when it came. It's been allowed to stay in the thin, torn, ratty-looking, nursery pot it arrived in so it could recover from shipping before it gets the added insult of being handled for repotting.

        Look for peet moss for the blue berries as they like acid soil , a friend used Rhododendron fertilizer for them .

          With the heat, I'm down to 1 avocado, 2 blueberries, and a handful of the oranges, but that's still more than I would have had if I hadn't tried at all.

            More Radiation (UV) is getting thru the atmosphere frying and drying out plants , if they are small enough shade them , our trees here are stressed an losing leaves , grass drying out, garden so so , it'll just be getting worse until about 2035 , then it's a pole shift ( SHTF) time .

              I think the pole shift will much sooner than that, the CME's are what concerns me the most.
              Sometimes I wrestle with my demons, other times we just snuggle.
