A journal of my home vegetable garden. Skippy and Suzie thinks it's their garden, but I do all the work. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6). I have a community garden plot and a big new garden in my backyard. I try to grow all of my family's vegetables using sustainable organic methods.

What a lovely thought, plus I love the recycled pink heart. I recycle cereal box card to make labels for my jams. Like your heart I attach them with elastic bands or string, then when the jars are returned I don't have to spend an age removing sticky labels.

Are you growing a Meyer lemon indoors? Any tips?

Yes, I am.

Tips:
- Give it as much sun as you can,
- It needs a lot of nitrogen so when the leaves start to get a little towards yellow add a high N fertilizer as close to 5-1-3 NPK as you can find,
- Put it outside in the summer where it gets lots of water and sun,
- Bring it inside when temperatures go below about 40*F at night.

My tree flowers in the summer and the winter and always has many lemons on it. They ripen slowly if they don't have lots of sun and often I pick them a bit green and they taste great even so.

Click on the "meyer lemon" tag to see my previous posts. Others have given me lots of good advice in the comments sections that you can look through.
