I need to pick a new fruit tree or two...oh yay.
For Christmas, my sister gave me the best gifts ever. She wrote me a letter. She told me what I mean to her. I don't think I've ever been in tears on Christmas Day before. She is beautiful. Then when I opened the framed picture of my Grandmother, the most beautiful human that ever lived on this planet, I was really sniffling up a storm.
She also gave me money. She knows how passionate I am about gardening and about food. She gave me the money to purchase a plant. Maybe a tree or bush. Something perennial. She wants to help me plant it so that I will think of her every time I see it. If you knew how close we are, this would make perfect sense.
I am thinking of another citrus or semi-tropical fruit. I have emailed my fruit tree supplier to see want they will have available for spring.
On New Years Eve my husband asked me to make him a Moscow Mule. They are so delicious. I squeeze fresh lime into them. I said, 'I don't have any limes.....but I do have lemons that look almost ripe in the greenhouse'. I put on my pink flowered boots, grabbed my ultra cool tiny flashlight and went out and picked a Meyer Lemon. It was delicious, but limes really are better in this drink. So I'm thinking, maybe a lime tree. What do you think?
