Wednesday Lagniappe: Citrus. In Virginia.
I grow Meyer lemons and Key limes. In Virginia. In the summer, they are outside on my porch, in the winter they are in my attic, under florescent lights. Two weeks ago I harvested enough key limes to make our favorite pie. I know, it is not a huge harvest, and I don't even really expect it to be, but I love growing citrus indoors, if only for the intoxicating fragrance of their flowers!
