      Who can tell me what this is?
      Hint: The fruits are edible but not native

        I have tried to think what my sister had and have come up with a walnut tree, a red peach tree and a lemon tree which had to be moved into the Wintergarten every winter.

            Quite hardy I believe but needs a good long hot summer perhaps..

                Moin everyone
                Same here @Victoria . We are drowning in snow. The harsh winds keep piling it up higher and higher and half of my colleagues had to call in and take a vacation da, because their cars would just sink in and stop moving all together.

                But an the bright side we bought the perfect home. Picture below was taken from the second floor of our house. Seems like the wind also cleared the street in front of our house perfectly. We barely had any to clear ourselves.IMG_20210207_110312.jpg

                A feel sad for our neighbors though. What we lacked, they got double. They have been shoveling for hours yesterday.

                    I had to wrap all my newly planted exotic trees. Persimmon, fig and almonds don't really like it cold. And I just planted them last october. I hope my babies don't die in the harsh cold (up to -15°C agree expected).
