And Now She’s Growing a Lemon Tree

Ever since the success of the avocado tree that now sits in a pot in a sunny warm place in our home, my daughter has wanted a lemon tree. Why stop with avocados? Why not grow a lemon tree?

On the kitchen window sill, she’s preparing lemon seeds to sprout. She soaked them, and now they sit in potting soil in a cup with plastic wrap over the top. She’s attempting this method first.

I’ll report back. So much of our family life involves watching things grow. I think of the roses climbing on the trellis, the raspberries and blackberries, the tomatoes, and the asparagus. I think of the avocado. And now, it’s lemons I’m watching.
