Previously I took temperatures of container soil with and without reflective foil. The foil reduced the temperature by roughly 15 degrees. That was during hot sunny weather. Based on that information, I've wrapped the 2 to 5 gallon containers with aluminum foil, shiny side out. I may need to do that with the larger containers as well.
One or two of the ginkgos may be used as rootstock to propagate my backyard ginkgo tree. The plums may also be rootstock for next year's scion. The dwarf peach seedling, I might use as rootstock or might just let it grow. Without a non-dwarfed peach rootstock, it might never become a tree shape. In a container, that's fine. I prefer the compact shape.
I probably should have thinned the peaches better. But, they are looking good.
I pinched the fig tree branch tips a couple weeks back. They are responding with figs at the leaf axils.
Nagami kumquat - greening up. No flowers.
Meyer lemon - lots of flowers.
