Weekend dog & herb blogging, all wrapped up in one tidy post.
Well, I think I can stretch it by calling a lemon an herb: We use them for flavor, right?
But I'm mad at my lemon treelet. Those two lemons on it are from last year. They're a whole year old, and that's weird. They've never become ripe enough to fall off by themselves, and I'm going to just pick them anyway.
I heard that picking lemons promotes new fruit growth, and boy do I need some of that. Every little new lemonette that shows up eventually turns yellow and commits infantisuicide. I had a promising-looking bud this month that just bit the dust yesterday. Darn.
I've repotted the tree into a larger container, so we'll see.
Bean Sprout sees nothing undignified at all about sitting in a lemon tree pot.
