We've already had a couple of frosts out here in the country. I didn't want to push my luck with my lemon tree, so i moved it into the greenhouse the end of last month. With all the unseasonably nice weather we had, i was afraid that maybe it was getting too hot in there in the afternoons. Then i remembered that these trees flourish in AZ. :)
Upon this week's inspection, i noticed the lemon tree is flowering again! *Sqee!* And right above those blossoms in the background you can see our first lemon developing.
Overall we have 3 lemons, but the other two are so tiny, and with lemon tree's propensity to drop fruit, i am trying not to get too excited.
Also, per recommendation of an inspiring blogging chap at Tall Clover Farm, i snapped up a Bearss lime plant i found in a grocer's floral section...on clearance for $5 no less. :) There were olive plants too, so i figured i give one of those a go. Behind them there are my lettuce plants for the winter. Boy, that medium greenhouse is filling up fast!
