♫ Lemon Tree Sprout ♫

Look what I have started to grow this spring !! Does it look like a lemon tree?

Hopefully it will in a few months. I got seeds from a relative's actual lemon tree, so the seeds never saw refrigeration. I enjoyed some lemon water, then decided to see what I could do with the seeds. After the seeds soaked in water for a few days, I put them in some soil and kept it very moist. It has taken a few weeks, but look what has come up ! There is a second sprout coming up too.

Last year I experimented with growing a sweet potato. This year I'll share my adventures with a little lemon tree.

How sweet - I should do that too...I love lemons. I have a lemon bush outside in a pot, but so far I only got a couple of small, green lemons that looked like limes from it...maybe this year.
I enjoy watching little seedlings sprout! Good luck with it, Kathryn :-)

Just checking in and hoping you're doing well, Kathryn. Hope you and your family (and pets and the bees) had a Happy Easter!
Kind Regards,
Doris :-)

Hi Doris,

Yes, we are good and slowly spring is starting up. I have a few things coming up in the garden !! The bees are very busy and buzzing all over looking for food.

I hope all is well with you and Gizzy.
