Schleppin thru LuKdia Quarantine Easter

Recommended Posts

Tracy

I schlep through my neighborhood often because I'm one of those dog walkers twice a day.  Yesterday and today I did something a little different, donning a custom made face mask, I took a real camera with me to take some photos of some of the neighbor's homes.  So are a few of the homes I walk by regularly and I skipped quite a few only because eventually the dog got thirsty and I didn't bring her water bottle.  First stop was the park and Lake Leucadia.  Did I mention it rained a little here the last few days?

Yes, I know one of those houses has been photographed a lot. So rather than focusing on something you may have already seen I'll go the other direction up to the north end of the neighborhood and the border with Carlsbad.  Some of the palms aren't as unusual, but it's still a pretty palmy place.

Sometimes its tempting to walk up and look over the fence, but other times its just all right out front to see.

Some of the CIDP's are domesticated while others are volunteers at our lagoons edge.

Roystoneas and Hyophorbes don't do bad here either.

In the end, it's nice to get home and relax... maybe even have banana or two.

Wow, @Tracy your 'hood's a lot prettier than mine.

Hmm. Interesting how those Roystoneas appear to be doing very well. I'd always heard they didn't like the beach areas much because of the relative lack of heat.

Hope there's something to catch the leaves when they fall on expensive cars (or people) . . . .

The ones in the garden with the Hyophorbes are Roystonea regia, but I'm not sure what the other two are.  The homes are very close less than a couple of hundred yards apart as the crow flies.  The first house has a carport that any falling leaves would land on as opposed to their cars, but the other home could have a problem if someone were parked in front at the curb.  I didn't take a photo of it when I went by, but you may recall that Dorian's house also has a Roystonea out front.  Dorian's home (formerly Dean's) was on the last San Diego area So Cal Palm Society tour in 2019.  Maybe Dorian or Dean can advise which species that one is, I know there used to be a label below it.

No toilet paper from the Easter Bunny.  Although, I think the Easter Bunny facilitated a bit of the barter economy, as some of my banana's ended up down the street at a neighbor's and some of their avocados ended up at my house.  Good Bunny, now who will facilitate the next exchange as it's a long wait before he returns.... the Tooth Fairy?  Monstera deliciosa is getting close to ripe.

      I have no wish to bring up the 800 lb gorilla sitting in most of our living rooms. My father was in the FBI so I grew up with 800 lb gorillas. Suffice it to say my husband and I are old and afflicted with conditions and ailments (type A blood anyone?) that render us both high risk. So, voluntarily, we have self-quarantined at our home on one of the larger residential properties in Cape Coral (0.61 acre - don't laugh). But we are blessed to be surrounded by 100s of my beloved palms and tropical plants that provide a cooling oasis and privacy. It's so restful to work in the yard, lots to be done to take my mind off the woes of the world.
      I thought I'd take some time to share photos of our little palm paradise as it looks like we won't be going anywhere for a while. I started outside the front door and continued into our 3-lot Garden Lot, which is fully planted except for our 10x16' garden shed.

      So one of my Washingtonia robusta started to go yellow and then the edges went brown and it slowly died. Then, two of my other Washingtonia have started to do the same thing a while back, but are still alive. Now, my final healthy one is starting to show the very beginning stages (slight yellowing in the oldest leaf). Then some of my Saw palmetto seedlings started to show "symptoms" and now it seems like my Archontophoenix cunninghamiana is showing it a little bit, although it fortunately doesn't seem to be progressing much. I can't tell if this is some sort of disease (I don't understand how potted palms indoors in Virginia would get a palm disease) or if they have some sort of fungus. Should I completely soak them in copper fungicide? I'm not going to lie, I am kind of freaking out a bit. Any advice would be helpful. I am not new to growing palms indoors during the winter and have been watering them each as I believe they should be watered while indoors (for example, Washingtonia get the least amount of water, to prevent rot). What could this be? Can I save these? I never had this problem before.

      Living in the Azores since 2015 after spending most of my adult life in New England, I've had a chance to explore most of S. Miguel island as a hiking guide. I've also started growing several palms in at quinta minuvida orchard lodge, our business. Most of them are looking pretty good by now.
      Posting here some images of my palm garden, the neighborhood and the island. I've found that pretty much everything grows since the climate is even, with high humidity and rain. I don't fertilize or water any of my palms or fruit trees.
      Please feel free to ask questions.

      The Roystonea on the forefront has been on the ground about three years now from 1 gallon container.
