The People Next Door Have a Lime Tree

We have the nicest neighbors and yes, I am missing that tree big time! They told us just to help ourselves and we wanted to return the favor. This year, we had planned on planting an orange tree and an grapefruit tree! Unfortunately, because of the weather, it's not going to happen because we won't be there!! On the other hand, we really don't know when the best time to plant the trees anyway. Now that I think about it, there is a lawn crew that take care of the property, maybe we should just ask them to do it. If you could plant two new trees on your property, what kind would they be??

Apparently we can grow them in Manitoba too. The wild variety are lining the driveway, so I'm really looking forward to seeing them in full bloom!

A lime tree in Manitoba? How does it survive?

Oh, I wish. The lime tree that I was referring to was in Florida. That was where we were supposed to spend Christmas before the blizzard arrived!

Here in Switzerland no kind of citrus for sure, they would freeze during the winter. I would plant another fig tree and a plum.

No citrus for us here in Manitoba but we do have 4 apple trees and lots of wild plums and cherry trees thanks to the previous owners. When we moved here, we had no idea what would grow here. Apparently, more than we expected! Darling daughter grabbed all of the apples and we will have hard cider come next summer. Had no idea how long the process would take!

@Hate2Iron Apples grow in cold countries and also apricots if there are sunny springs. We have apricots here and in winter persimmons and pomegranates.

I would plant an apple tree and a mulberry tree. Mulberry trees can be a bit messy, but I do love mulberries.

I don't think that I have ever had mulberries?? What kind of fruit would you compare them to??

@Hate2Iron Well, perhaps a bit like a black raspberry, but sweeter. Mulberry pie is wonderful.

We have a dwarf apple tree that looks hilarious with all the snow that we have. We should take a photo of it and say that the tree is 30 feet high and mostly buried in all the snow! We have sour cherry trees, that we haven't quite figured out what to do with!

@Hate2Iron Make jam of the sour cherries or boil them and put them on a cake with whipped cream.

Um. ..any pretty ones that didn't drop leaves, lol. We have a lot of trees, it's foresty country here on our little hill. We have a lemon tree that is starting to produce right now. I've never had a lime tree!

I don't know if a lime tree is any harder to grow that a lemon, but a wedge was so nice in summer drinks!! I want my own now!
