The Sad Little Lemon
The Sad Little Lemon used to live between a fence and my front path. I've babied it for a couple of years - daily hand watering, regular mulching, the odd talking too... but the Sad Little Lemon has remained sad, dropping its fruit buds and looking distinctly jaundiced.
So last night I moved him to the corner of my vege patch, next to the Very Happy Lemonade (see below, not actually a lemon, but a cross between a mandarin and a grapefruit or something).
I wasn't 100% sure about giving up a decent part of my already small vege patch, but I've done it now. We'll always need lemons for our gin afterall.
Now I fully expect the Sad Little Lemon to drop all its leaves or blow over in the next southerly buster.
I'll keep you posted.
