I know the pic is not the prettiest or the best picture but I am very proud of my little baby lemon trees! :-)

I have 9 that have sprouted in total. The little one with the 4 leaves above the one in the center is not a lemon tree... I'm not sure what it is exactly, but it's not one of my lemons! Lol.

Right from seed. It's seriously very easy. I took the seeds out of my lemon and dried them off, made sure all the fruit was off them and planted them in some soil in a pot and about 2 weeks later I got my first sprout :-). I'll be posting a step-by-step how to on my blog tonight or tomorrow. Feel free to check it out. Link is below :-)

Hey,

Growing from seeds: not for me! Don't have the patience. I'm up to 18 different fruit trees planted in my field:pear trees, peach trees, plums and apple trees. The difficulty I' m having is to have apple trees that bear fruit. 3of my apple trees are "Honeycrisps" but they are still not bearing fruits( 3 years since they were planted). However, my peach trees are producing 6dozens peaches this year.
