The dream of growing my own citrus fruit...
It seems I will be getting my wish
from these unopened blooms, that will grow my first lemons.
In fact, some have already opened.
The name is Meyer Lemon Tree......
and you may click HERE to read about them.
Just look....tiny lemons have begun to form
Let's do the math....
I paid $35.00 for the tree. At 50 cents per lemon (store bought)
It will need to produce 70 lemons to pay for the tree.
With the tree blooming twice a year,
I think it's an achievable goal.
My Early Girl Tomatoes
Because they produce fruit in about 50 days,
I always plant at least 2 or 3 plants.
Do you grow Early Girl Tomatoes?
to read about them.
It just may convince you to give them a try.
If they continue to grow at this pace,
I will be enjoying fresh sliced tomatoes in less than a month.
