Say Hello To...

Eureka Lemon.
We have a bush lemon and at the moment it is chokkers but I think it only fruits every second year.  The fruit is small and knobly but juicy. We have bought this one so we will get lemons all year round.

We bought a couple of trees a few weeks ago and will plant them out near the dam this weekend.

I ripped a branch off of a plant at  L's place last year and now have 7 or 8 plants, some in pots and some where I don't want them.  I will get them trimmed and in their proper place over the next day or so.

One of the bushes that we have has spread and rooted so I am going to cut them off and transplant them

Chocolate Mint.
This was given to me as a rooted cutting and seems to have taken off so I am going to pot some up and see if I can get a decent supply.  It smells like After Dinner Mints and I have been told that you can drink it as a tea.  Have yet to try that though. 

Not much else is *new* but I do have things that need potting on and some things ned transplanting so will try and get that done within the next week or so as well.  Looks like I have stuff to do so will get out there and make a start.

I hope everyone gets to spend some time outside this weekend.  Much nicer than being  inside with the computer. 


  1. Barb my lemon has never produced any fruit as yet. So frustrating. Think I will buy another one this year!

    Wormwood now that is meant to be a good herb for around the chook run. Happy planting

  2. I am wondering what we are going to do with all the lemons as we have too many now. I am going to try candying some peel this afternoon.

    And I will make some lemon spread stuff as well.
