We also harvested citrus fruits and sell them to whoever ordered. Actually we only have 6 trees, but they fruited well that we have to sell most of the fruits. Our picking pole with pouch at the end is just improvised and repaired by my mother. I had also to climb with slippers on to lessen the stress on the feet. Although my arms, feet and back ached i am very happy for the experience. Many people pay a lot in the gym, here i had a free exercise, and not in an airconditioned room but with free normal air, oxygen laden newly produced by the trees. As they said "the best things in life are free"!
I want to share with you my unusual finds. Some of you gardeners and nature wanderers might be too familiar with them.
Definitely, these two moths are not the adults of the green hirsute catterpillar!
These chickens are hybrids. They are offsprings of Japanese chicken hen and native Filipino rooster. The black hen got the color, body size, short feet length and leg feathers from the Japanese chicken parent.The white rooster however, got the size of the native chicken, as well as the length of its legs, but it also got the leg feathers typical of the Japanese chicken mother. They are all fertile.
I found this spider on top of the trees and i had to climb a ladder to use my Point and Shoot camera, i wish i had a nice zoom lens of a DSLR.
Nonetheless, i had a better than none shot, magnified below. I also have old posts of this spider in close up.
This red mushroom come in compatibly with the green maidenhair fern.
And these are the citrus fruits of our labor! They taste so sweet, juicy and delicious! Haaaay....
