close to home


Here is another example of our temperate climate (even though we are at the same latitude as the northern-most tip of Maine).  We bought this lemon tree at our local gardening center which had it labelled as a Meyer Lemon.  We never expected to see one here.  The entire tree is around a yard / meter in height.  Anyway, it appears to be quite happy on our terrace with over a dozen little lemons on it as you see below.

  3. Cool! Now you need an orangerie so it can over-winter. lol. Do you cover it when there is a threat of freeze or is the terrace protection enough?

    1. Yes we do cover it when there is any chance of freezing temps. That didn't happen very often last year !
