I had a glorious conversation with my mother earlier this week, though that's not saying much, because conversations with her are always glorious. Of our many topics of conversation, however, was the prospect of growing trees in pots.
Lemon, lime, orange, and kumquat trees, to be precise.
One of our dear family friends does it quite successfully on her back porch. She brings them in during the Winter, I think, but her portable orchard produces citrus abundantly.
Can you imagine!?
To the root cellar, summer kitchen, white picket fence garden, dairy barn, and pig wallow, you can now add "screened in back porch" to my list of "requirements" for the dream house.
It is, after all, a dream house.
