Wonders In My Garden: My Orange Tree With Tons Of Fruit!

This year I really took very good care of my urban orchard. I fertilized it, had no diseases, watered it properly, trimmed it at perfect timing. The result is here: so far, I have harvested 108 oranges and still there are probably another hundred to be collected. Oh, and the flavor of them is amazing. They are so sweet and juicy. Delicious!
