October in our Sunnyvale Garden 2018

October is a transition time in our Sunnyvale garden. The last of the summer fruits and vegetables taper off. There is a tomato that will never ripen. The last of the marionberries got ripe – it tasted great. All of the black mission figs and panache figs were consumed by either squirrels or the dreaded night squirrels. The fall and winter citrus fruits are continuing to grow. There are ripe and unripe lemons, limes, pomegranates, and feijoa. The grapefruit and tangerine have fruit but it won’t be ripe till February. My aggressive pruning was frowned upon at home.
