Meme#1 - Well we cannot even grow citrus here. My wife has a kaffir lime tree she grows in a big pot as the leaves are an essential ingredient in many Thai dishes. It's one of the ones we have to baby every winter. Even the heartier varieties of citrus we've tried to grow in the ground have all died in the freezes but we've never had a problem with our pom. Good luck!

Citrus definitely doesn't like freezes and in fact until about 5-10 years ago I only saw citrus trees far south from me in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas were there are citrus groves as far as the eye can see. I think we didn't have freezes here in my area for several years so people began planting them not knowing that if we have one of those years, they would all die in my area.
So thanks about the Pomegranate info, now I'm definitely going to buy the first one I see.

I stopped watering my tomato plants after a bountiful harvest in early September. I had more tomatoes that I knew what to do with. But little tomatoes kept popping up. Not watering the plants they were small (2 to 3 oz) and ripened more slowly - one or two at a time. That was perfect. I was having a nice fresh sliced up tomatoes on my dinner salad most every night. Those small tomatoes continued through September and October. We had our first hard freeze a week ago. The tomato plants are dead. I enjoyed my little garden this year. I'll do it again next year - perhaps a little bigger next time.

That's great Ken that you grew so many nice tomatoes this year. I love the taste of vine ripe tomatoes, it's good like nothing else. Did you take any pictures?
I'll bet your family was happy to have such nice fresh tomatoes.

I have oranges ripening right now and also a tree full of lemons that haven't started ripening yet, there all still green.
I've only had one orange so far, as a rare treat. The sugar is so darn high so I can't make a habit of it. I need to give some away, I think.

Happy Gardening!!

I decided to take out my Vegatti that has been hiding back in the cabinet for a while and make use of it.

I spiraled 2-3 Zucchini, let them drain in colander for a couple of hours.
Tip on making the zoodles, don't keep going and make them 3 feet long but stop at 2-3 inches and repeat.

Scrambled a couple of eggs
Add zoodles and dredge in the egg
Got oil in pan hot and scooped little mounds which I press down a bit.
Voila Zucchini hash browns.
And they were good!
