Well, now you know 3 & 4 of our fruit trees!!
We have 1 lemon, and 1 lime. And it’s really hard to distinguish them!! How do you tell when a lime is ripe?????
My funny Sis, Michelle, said, “When they turn green!” Thanks, goofy!
I have a suspicion that the one on the bottom is the lemon.
But until a few days ago, all fruit on both trees were green! (Turns out, it was an orange!!)
I can’t wait to make some home grown Lemonade !! (affiliate link) That I will do!
And some Key Lime pie! (affiliate link) Oh yeah, really?? You will not! Yes I will!! Okay, no I won’t. But I’ll gladly pick them, and take to Mama to make pies!!
BTW, are they still key limes, if they are only grown in FL, but not the keys?? I need to look that up!
And last, but not least, we have a blood orange tree. My mouth is already watering for those!! But they are still small, and green. I have confidence tho, that I’ll be able to tell when they’re ripe!!
Here’s a pic of a ripe blood orange:
So, that’s the end of our mini orchard. We’re farmers now y’all!!
A Peaceful post. (I so wish I could show you the girls with their huge grins!!)
