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.

Meyer Lemon and Mint

The Meyer Lemon is still coming along well. I plan to set it outdoors mid May and I hope being outdoors will help it grow stronger and larger. Also wanted to share my mint that over wintered in the pot without any assistance from me. However, it was a very mild winter. I love the smell of mint.

  1. My mint was coming up, but was bit by some low temps. I can't wait for it to come back again. Mint IS wonderful! (Did you bring that pot indoors?)

  2. No the pot was outdoors all winter. This was such a mild winter.

  3. Great job getting your lemon tree pollinated! Mine flowered like crazy but I still don't seem to have the knack for making like a bee...

  4. I just used a Q-Tip and went from flower to flower. Give that a try for pollination.

  5. I have 4 little lemons on my tree and two more clusters of blooms getting ready to open! It's so exciting! I didn't even think of hand pollinating mine! I have 7 pots of mint outside. I always leave them out all winter and they do just fine. You can't have too much mint when it's hot out and mojito season arrives!
