About a year ago, I bought a Meyer lemon tree. It looked like that photo above.
Now it looks like this (!!!). I actually have a real, live, fruit-producing lemon tree! I’m so proud, especially considering I can barely keep herbs alive and my tomatoes died a sad, heat-related death this summer. I didn’t even do anything that special for to this tree: I watered it a few times a week, when the soil looked dry, and planted it in citrus fertilizer when I got it, but other than that, I just let it do its thing and here are the results. So satisfying!
I can’t wait to use these lemons in my morning lemon water and, of course, for cooking and baking (Meyers are the best, aren’t they?). And I have to say, I’m feeling a little more confident trying my hand at more gardening now–especially since we have a big backyard to play with these days.
Do you guys grow your own fruits and vegetables? Anything I should try next?
