I have lived in Indiana all my life so I have naturally only planted Indiana trees.  One of my random excitements about moving to Florida was the ability to have citrus trees in my own back yard. I know not a single thing about growing a lemon tree but I am going to give it my best!  If I can grow a mighty oak tree, how hard can it be to grow a lemon tree?

*Update…As of 2/2016 I still have not picked a single lemon from my tree.  I’m guessing it was more involved than I thought.

Lemon tree

A quick stop at Lowe’s (yes we are starting to find stores we recognize) and I have my first lemon tree!

About The Author

I am the mom of the typical American family that did a not-so-typical thing! We moved 1000 miles south of our hometown to a city we knew little about. Those first few weeks were crazy! I didn't go anywhere without putting the address into my GPS. I drove the wrong way on the Turnpike & the 408 and at one point ended up in Winter Park when I was headed to Winter Springs! We struggled with everything from finding doctors and dentists to determining where to grocery shop. Every trip to get gas or dinner was a new exploration and adventure. Within a few weeks, however, we had made a serious dent in our "To Find" list and started to feel a little confident in this new city. Today, It has been nearly 2 years since we pulled that moving truck into Orlando and we all couldn't be happier or more settled! This isn't the path for every family...that's for sure. But if you are prepared for the same journey, hopefully I can be a resource for you so you don't end up in Hunter's Creek when you are trying to go to Altamonte Springs!
