We live in zone 6a and I have been gardening and cooking for years. This blog is an opportunity for me to share with you my success and those failures that come about on occasion. Plus, I want to hear from all the gardeners and bakers and cooks out there and learn from you. Feel free to share your ideas.

News Flash-Meyer Lemon

I just had to share with you that I noticed my Meyer Lemon tree has blossoms. Not in a million years did I expect it to happen so soon after delivery a few weeks ago. Plus, it was delivered as a bare root 3 foot tree and I had to transplant it. It is in a southern window and gets sun occasionally and other days no sun because our winters are so cloudy. I was informed by one of the gardeners at Rahn's Garden Center not to fertilize it until March and to start out with half strength at that. The blooms are supposed to give off a magnificent fragrance--which is something to look forward to.

Also I water it once a week and that is it. I do not baby it at all.


  1. Wow, that's amazing! Hopefully they won't drop and you'll have some lemons this fall!

  2. Robin-Thanks. I wonder if there is a way to prevent the drop off of blooms, such as there is for tomatoes.
