Lemon tree update


Even though this blog is getting spammed to death and is no longer any fun, if I am keeping it, I may as well post on it. 
The lemon tree is getting so big. It is hard to get a good picture, to get this one I was standing in the tomato bed to get back far enough. It is bigger than it looks here, I'm so proud!
 Just to the right in the black pot is a baby apple tree started from seed. I will plant it in the fall. I looked that up online. I have cages I made so deer won't carry the baby trees off. (This is my third apple tree. I have a thing for starting trees from seeds.) It is always scary putting something you started from seed in the ground though!

  1. Wonderful! I was inspired by one of your earlier posts to have a go at my own lemon tree. I started one from a seed a year ago and it is about a foot and a half now. No mean feat given that nothing much but pine trees grow here. I shall avidly watch for tips!

  4. Wow that's awesome! You're like my grandmother, she grew grapefruit trees and lemon trees from the seeds she got out of the fruit. The leaves always smelt wonderful! I hope your trees survive their transplant! Mean old deer carrying them off.

    1. Hi Sheila,
      Thank you! Deer aren't the only problem, I saw one day the horrid invasive wild grapevines had a death grip on the top of one apple tree...I spent hours clearing the encroaching area behind him to free him and make sure it won't happen again....
