I Dub Thee Oscar the Meyer Lemon Tree

ImageIn spite of the fog and cold summers in the Bay Area you can still quite successfully grow citrus fruits.  Since we have a smaller patio we went with a dwarf meyer lemon tree.  Although the exposure is to the Northeast, the fact it is nearly rooftop will allow for 8+ hours of sun every day.  The only concern will be too much wind and we are prepared to deal with that if the need arises.  This tree is straight, about 4 feet tall, and is blossoming already.  In fact, I am hoping that by the end of the summer there will be some fruit to harvest!  Last but not least, we named this plant Oscar.  As in Oscar Mayer.  Mayer = Meyer!  BOOM!  My cleverness knows no bounds! 

Cheers!
