Thanks for your post. I have heard that the Meyer lemon is somewhat sweeter. I like them mainly because the dwarf variety can be kept small and still produce. It's going to stay in a container in a sunny spot on my patio as long as possible because I don't want it taking up valuable space in the garden. My sweet bay tree is also in a container, and doing well. I read once in a garden magazine that if the root ball of a plant fits in a container, you can have a container garden. I suppose as long as its water, nutrients and light requirements are met that's probably true.
Like you, I've also done vegetable and herb gardens in the past. The kids and I started our entire vegetable garden from seed in my greenhouse several years back. It's SO rewarding to nurture the seedlings, plant them out in the garden, then watch the kids' excitement as their little plants miraculously produce food for the table! It's so much fun.
This year, I'm doing several herbs from seed, but also leaving space in one area of the garden for only 2 zucchini plants.....2 will undoubtedly produce more than even my family can consume:lol: I can't believe how many zukes can grow on one plant!
Anyway, I'm excited about the gardening season this year, especially one suited to culinary uses:chef:. Best of luck with your gardening efforts, and thanks for the info.
