Promise of Winter


Just think, six months from now I may be enjoying the cool weather without swamp pants and some lemons.  This spring, the lemon tree had an explosion of blossoms.  Scads of miniature lemons started to develop; but bit by bit they fell.  Erased from existence.  The little potted tree can only support so much fruit.  Fortunately, quite a few lemons remain.DSC_2266_6782

Six months from now I hope to be harvesting lemons, oranges, grapefruit, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, peas, and carrots.  Until then, I’ll keep my swamp pants on and not get them in a knot trying to enjoy with summer has to offer.

I couldn't imagine being able to garden year round. I'm torn on that---I moved to northern Michigan because I love snow so much. But wow--fresh citrus and broccoli in January sound pretty good too!
