|These are our lemons|
About 3 years ago - Lulu bought 4 citrus trees at Lowes and planted them. Within 6 months we had fruit on each tree. Each year it got better and better. Last Christmas - the grandkids planted a kumquat tree. No fruit on that yet.
Up north - I always dreamed of a cold day of picking oranges and lemons fresh for breakfast. Now we have done that. I am not picky about eating - but I love a fresh lemon for my Lipton tea in the morning. We will get a few dozen lemons now - but my friend Bill - just 2 doors north of us - he gets thousands off his one tree - it is amazing. Some of them are as big as softballs.
