Crazy plant person hand pollinating lemon blossoms. Already I see signs of fruit set. Yippee!

Dan, it's a meyer lemon that lives in my living room. Since there's a lack of bugs to flit around and distribute pollen, and it's flowering now, I'm dropping the pollen onto the pistol myself.
NewGuy, we do allow each other to talk about our other plants from time to time.

I love Meyer Lemons. I would grow them just for the fragrance! The fruit is nice too though :)
I set mine next to a variegated eureka lemon so the bees will go from the Meyer to the Variegated. The variegated ones do not normally set as much fruit but I have found that when I keep the Meyer next to it, it has improved the fruit set on the other one.

Oh I love Meyer lemons too! I have a small tree in a pot, but it's not too productive. My previous home had one and I got fruit year-around. A lady at my dd's job sometimes gives my dd a huge bag full of Meyers from her tree. Last time, I juiced most of them and frost them in ice cube trays, then put in a large baggy for my dd. Otherwise, she would have thrown them all away because she can't stand to have food around for more then a couple of weeks. Hope you get to make a good lemonade Diane :-)
