Re: More crazy weather


My first Meyer lemon died the first winter I brought it into the house. Then I read a recommendation somewhere that the best way to keep them alive indoors was to feed them a weak acid fertilizer once a month. This is the second winter I've used something like "Miracid" monthly, and it's doing very well.

My Meyer lemon is dying.... Have no idea why, but this is the second
one to go. Guess I have a "brown thumb" where they are concerned (sigh).

That's odd, Jim.  My Myer lemon is blooming like crazy.  Maybe it
thinks my back porch is Florida.  BTW, I'm concerned about Pam and
Betsy with all the tornadoes in Texas today and the new blizzard
in Colorado.

It is odd, Auralie. Our winter thus far has been warmer than
usual, also--lows in the 60s, highs in the 80s. That's about 10
degrees higher than December averages on both ends. Only two
mornings so far have been cool enough to suggest a sweatshirt.
Thus far, I've managed to both ignore it and enjoy it--except I
haven't seen any citrus blooms yet, and that's kind of worrisome.
This is normally the time of year when all of them bloom.
