Produce report: Limes

My various tropical trees are doing well in the greenhouse, their new home. I wasn’t really sure if this greenhouse would make much difference but a Meyer lemon matured into adulthood in it, it appears that blossoms are developing on it and my lime tree is happily sporting an assortment of fruit of various sizes. 

I needed lime juice for coriander chutney (cilantro chutney, if you prefer) and I picked the 3 largest although still mid-sized ones. They didn’t give up much juice actually but the juice was really flavorful and fragrant. 

Imagine picking limes in the middle of the winter in Wisconsin. Maybe I’ll make a pie.
