On a whim, Kevin bought a lime tree and a tangerine tree. They are small trees, but bear lots of fruit, and can live in pots. I am excited to see how things turn out with these little things and if they will in fact bear fruit.
The boys have also been wanting to plant strawberry plants forever so I found a little kit that had seeds and soil and we got them planted a few days ago. I also have plans to start a mini garden out back. Teeny really, just peppers and green beans, but maybe it will do well and I'll be more adventurous next year.
