Green plants in my greenhouse with green jalapeño poppers for dinner.

Not me personally, I’ve had a little bit of luck growing citrus such as oranges lemons and limes but even they are difficult. I’d also be interested to know if anybody is able to grow orchids out here.

Wish I could say I grew this. I did however grow the lemon blossom below it as well as the parsnips. I’ve also got broccoli seeds started indoors as well as okra, jalapeños and tomatoes. I will be eating fresh lettuce from the greenhouse soon as well as cilantro, radishes and Swiss chard

You can grow lemon trees in containers in your home, Meyer lemons make a great project all year long. You can also start citrus trees from cuttings, Or from seed, if you’re interested ask me how. I’ve also been working on methods of heating a small greenhouse at a lower cost.
