My Growing Citrus Collection

My growing citrus collection is thriving in my greenhouse. During the freezing months of winter, my potted citrus trees and other tropical specimens are kept in one of my hoop houses at the farm. With proper feeding and watering, and just the right temperatures, they have been extremely productive over the years. It is so satisfying to grow and pick your very own citrus fruits - and my grandchildren love eating them all. Most of my collection came from my friends Byron Martin and Laurelynn Martin, owners of the amazing Logeeā€™s Tropical Plants, in Danielson, Connecticut.

Many of you have asked how my citrus plants are doing - enjoy these photos.
