Baby Lemons Getting Fat and Happy

My two small Meyer Improved Lemon Trees are going to have a decent crop of fruit this year. Here is a shot of 3 of the babies getting fat and happy. These lemons get very large and are quite sweet and will make wonderful lemonade and Whiskey Sours in the fall.

Hi Ginger,
Yes, I grow these lemon trees in huge pots on the west side of my house. They are too big and heavy to bring inside in winter. Here in Zone 8 they have some leaves killed off by cold, but do just fine the following spring. I drape a blanket over their tops only when record low temps are in the forecast. Works just fine.
