After almost three years of nurturing, watering, repotting and babying, our dwarf pomegranate looks like it is ready to bare fruit. Within a few months the tart seeds and sweet juice will be ours to delight in.
We’re not sure how we’re going to eat it all … we should probably share, though. And not eat it all at once. Take our time, share, and appreciate.
Our dwarf lemon tree is doing great. At two years-old, it’s growing rapidly and should produce fruit next year.
I cannot imagine it holding lemons, but if that’s what it is designed to do, that’s what it will do!
As you can see, the banana tree has been much fussier in its atmosphere preference. It didn’t thrive in the dining room, so I moved it next to the heater, under the main window. It is looking much better. The banana tree requires watering about once every three weeks, where the pomegranate once every two days. The other two, however, need watering once every three or four days.
I look forward to the cute little dwarf bananas that should produce next year.
Last, but not least, our coffee tree. Country Man and I are equally excited for this to bear beans next year. Hindsight, though, we should have bought more of these if we really wanted to make our own coffee. The problem is a lack of space, so maybe some day in the future.
We’d love to sip on our own ground beans as we read before we begin our day. I can picture it already …
May the fruits of our labor be abundant, bearing and delicious!
