This year has been a year of standing on the sideline for me. My love of gardening and growing my own fruits and vegetables was diminished because of our move to the farm house in September. Moving out of a house that you lived in for twelve years is tough. Not having the time it takes to garden when your packing and purging made me so sad. It is now snowy here in Minnesota and I am already planning my setup to start growing my seeds and adding plants through out the house for my winter doldrums's.
My need for plants trees and something that smells like the outdoors has me thinking lemon tree. I have always wanted to purchase one so I asked my husband to order me one for Christmas. Can you imagine the smell of a few Lemon trees producing there succulent citrus flavor and smell? Did you know that lemons are my favorite fruit? I actually eat them like an orange or an apple. I eat the skin and all. It is not bitter like the skin of a lime.
I start in the middle of December and decide what perennials and vegetable's I am going to be growing. I turn to a plant guide for extra assistance. This year I am basically starting from scratch so I am looking for plants to start in the house that I can take cuttings from to multiple over and over. I have a ton of sun through out the house. Having plants growing in the house and watching everything growing outside makes me so happy! Do you have a green thumb? Do you enjoy taking care of plants or gardening?
