When life gives you lemons....

Happiness is... picking and using your own home-grown lemons in your iced tea! This is a potted 'Eureka' Lemon that I bought from the Four Winds Nursery in California. It is grafted on to Poncirus 'Flying Dragon' rootstock, which has a dwarfing effect that makes it grow only to about 25% of the normal size for a 'Eureka' (i.e. perfect for a large pot). It lives outside all summer and winters in my sunroom. I also have a 'Meyer' Lemon, a Calamondin, and 2 Kumquats. Had them all for years.
(hopefully Photobucket is cooperating and you can see the pics!)
