You knowwwwww a lot about such things.

I took it upon myself to do a little light pruning.
Those thorns are sharp. They Hurt! I pruned.

What else should I know about growing a stunted citrus forest?
Don't turn your back on them and bend over. That I know.


citrus trees need little maintenance as far as pruning goes, they are very forgiving. However I like mine to have an open structure, so I treat them like apple trees or peach trees when trimming, keeping branches growing away from the center, and keeping them from crossing each other. The main goal is to keep the fruit from touching the ground when growing, and to keep them from growing too tall (this typically means trimming the big sprouts that reach much taller than the tree itself, lemons are particularly known for doing this).

Any other specifics, message me, and I'll be happy to help.

Today I learned that my friend Catherine loves to hang out in the shower after I'm out of it, lapping the water from all the puddles :shock:

edit: wow. there's a forum filter for "c at" that says "my friend Catherine"


I didn’t know this until I started to read this thread......... huh, what are other ones?

C at= cat
Lo se the ga me= lose twenty dollars and my self respect

Suggests checking out this. Specifically, pre-existing filters. May or may not be accurate still.

Funny, that's why I only have sex with no fewer than 50 people at once. I figure 1/50th of the whatever will just make my immune system learn to fight it off, like a vaccine.

It's a foolproof plan!

TIL pistachio nuts are ambrosia. I somehow made it almost 29 years without discovering their deliciousness.

Make sure to try them in ice cream form at some point. It will rock your world.

One day I intend to make a cardamom pistachio cream dessert of sorts. Probably pudding or mousse. I had something like it at an Indian restaurant and it was bloody fantastic, though terribly sweet. It was meant to be interleaved with bites of hot curry which was a delightful way to eat it. I can't curry anymore, so I wanna take the idea into a more Western style dessert.

One day when I have all the time in the world, of course.

My dear and esteemed Poxic, I obviously support you by default, and share you devotion to the Pistachio nut (particularly as it's one of the few nuts that doesn't try to kill me).

However, your introduction of cardamom crosses a line that can not be forgiven. After 9 months of forced-drinking cardamon coffee I am afraid I am repulsed by the hideous seed. Sorry. I think I have a repeating nightmare of the day after the US election, sitting in an office in Jordan being repeatedly served cardamon-laden Turkish coffee whilst watching Arabic news reports of arsewipe and his family crowing about their success. Think that was the ultimate aversion therapy. However, always happy to eat pistachios in any form.

My honourable and fine Jumble, I weep at the injustice that was brought against the noble cardamom seed, and that you were subject to the collateral damage. Perhaps I might suggest a saffron pistachio cream as a salve?

For your edification/inspiration, here's a New York Times article about the Saffron & Rose Ice Cream shop near the University of California, Los Angeles, campus. Enjoy.

Two quibbles: Westwood's nickname is "Tehrangeles," not "Little Tehran," and the opening statement that "On the eve last month of Nowruz, the Persian New Year, there was no parking to be had on Westwood Boulevard in Los Angeles" does not impress me, as in my experience there is almost never parking to be had on that part of Westwood Boulevard (Nowruz or no Nowruz). Which is one reason why I've never set foot in the shop. I've driven by it many, many times, though, which is why I thought of it.

Sounds like a shrikhand to me. A fine dessert! http://chefinyou.com/2010/08/31/shrikhand/ Never thought of adding pistachio. No time like the present!
