Hi all! I love seeing everyone's pictures and finally got around to posting some of my own.

My Meyer Lemons from last summer:

Okay, not citrus:

And what my condo looks like in the winter:

Hi Liz, your plants are beautiful. So is your kitty. Good gosh you are high up. Made my stomach do flip flops. :-o

Great plants! I'm inspired by your lemon! Will take an educated guess and say "she's" gorgeous (your tri-colored cat) and wow, that parking lot view is like going home for me. Grew plants on my condo balcony for many years, where the wind could get really bad but few bugs liked high altitudes. Happily, I live on ground level now...still learning about citrus and hoping to learn how to post pic one of these days!

That is indeed a fig. It was my first and is nice and large but yet to throw off any figs. My smaller and newer one had 4 figs in the first year I had it (they fell off b/c winter came) and is now covered with tiny new figs. Go fig-ure (sorry), I've heard some plants take a while to produce.

And mandrin1, it's indeed a she. Cali is my rescue kitty. She likes sitting IN the larger pots. I'm worried my tomato seedlings will meet the same fate as the arugula she sat on after sampling. Luckily my balcony is really well shielded from the wind. The folks on the back side are lucky if they can keep soil in their pots.
