Growing meyer lemons

I’ve tried and tried to grow Meyer lemons for years.  I pruned, spritzed, fed and even polished dull leaves – but never got a response.  I had the Charlie Brown Christmas tree of lemon trees:  a few spindly sticks with a couple of apathetic leaves.

I left the plant out on my patio all summer and ignored it.  If it wanted to be a stick, let it be a stick.

Then, I brought it into the house for the winter and that little stick-tree had about a dozen leaves on it and – SIX LEMONS!

They’re ugly little things but just about the MOST flavorful lemons I’ve ever tasted.  Store bought lemons taste terrible to me now.

Sometimes the best way to solve a problem is to stop fussing over it and let it work itself out!
