Save the lemon tree

It is finely here…cooler fall weather . Yes I  have had to turn on some heat and the dog looks like she would like to be in instead of out but not just yet Babe. Now Journey End Farm isn’t much of a farm since the farmer left but there is still the lemon tree. This poor tree must have a will to live because it has almost died several times. One year the cold did get it and a good bit of the tree really did die. Then for a couple of years there were no blooms and the bugs were really bad. But…this year there are BIG beautiful lemons and a lot of them. Couple of dozen or so. Here are two pictures taken after I managed to clean out around the tree and water it really well so I could close up the hoop house (green house). The hoop house has been and still is in need of a revamp which I feel is in the very near future. It hasn’t been in full production in several years and there are changes coming. The buckets are under heavy branches for support . That is how big and heavy the fruit is.

The second picture shows the bay tree in the background that is trying to grow out the top. I think I thought it would be a bush when I planted it years ago. This is one reason there are changes coming.What a mess my hoop house is in.

Thank you for all the new visitors. Please leave a comment so I know you were here. Just say” Hi”.  Until next time do have a grand weekend and remember  This is the Lords day…Rejoice!

  1. Oh my Goodness! Those lemons look rather on the big side of things, Bev! Well done that Lemon Tree.

    I can see why you were fussing over getting those lemons all safely tucked in.

    Until you can get that hoop house thing seen to… could you cut some of that Bay down a little so that it doesn’t poke through the skin and let the rain in?
    Just a thought.

    Fabulous pictures Beverly. Great Post.

  3. Love your hoop house Beverly and that lemon tree is so neat! About the only fruit trees we get to grow around here are apple trees….though some do try pears and plums. Did you make lemonade with some of those lemons? Or what do you do with that many?
