Green Thumb Sunday- Lime Life
My little lime tree is doing so well- with lime life in all stages! This tree is a "Mexican Lime" or key lime as commonly known.
It flowers and fruits repeatedly rather than just giving me one crop of fruit per year, the way my other citrus trees do. This means that there are flowers, and fruit in all stages on the tree at the same time.
Here are some teeny tiny little baby limes just getting started!
The biggest of these is getting almost big enough to eat. I have an incredible recipe for Key lime pie: Key Lime Endeavor with White Chocolate Macadamia Crunch, that is just out of this world- I have been using this recipe for years and it is an all time favorite-I can't wait to make it with fresh limes!
The little bee in this picture took me by surprise- I hadn't noticed him buzzing around me and suddenly there he was in the view finder! He was busy though doing his thing, and didn't care much about me!
