The husband and I planted a lime tree a few weeks ago because, despite being told our soil may not be great, our neighborhood has a ton of orange and lemon trees so we knew cities should work. Plus, mature fruit trees add value to a home, right? My lime tree has been doing pretty well and is showing signs of growth. It's on the side of our house by my rain barrel (which collects water from our gutters when it rains, yes I try to be green) which means it gets watered by collected water. Pretty neat!
