Back at the end of March I got an email from Jenn at the Foodie Blogroll saying I'd won their bi-weekly contest. I was shocked. I never win anything. My prize was a $50 gift certificate to be used at From the Farm, an online farmers market. I had a really tough time picking a prize since everything sounded fantastic, but finally I decided on a dwarf lemon tree:
I planted the tree in a large container and kept it inside for a few weeks until the weather got a bit warmer. It's now out back in the direct sun and I really hope it thrives. I don't live in a good citrus tree climate, but since I can bring the tree inside in the winter I'm hopeful it'll survive. For now I'm anxiously waiting for the first fruit to appear.
