Springing into new beginnings

The birds are getting frisky and so is our Meyer lemon plant. Soon, there will be many baby birds…and baby lemons. Well, the first is a certainty anyway, and I’m hoping for the latter as well. I do, however, feel a little promiscuous as I make like a pollinator every morning with a paintbrush (pollen, meet stigma).

See? Little baby lemons already (next to their older siblings).

Meanwhile, it’s still sort of winter. Last week, we had temps in the 20s F. But despite that, the Spousal Unit was able to harvest these gorgeous kale and collards from the greenhouse…

Beautiful, no?

By the way, the title of the post also alludes to some really exciting news which I can’t tell yet…because publishing. But I can’t wait to shout it to the world!
