My First Lemons!

Oh, and we have CHERRIES and strawberries too! YUM!

 The lemons are a little smaller than store-bought ones (not sure why).

Organic eco lemons come in a plastic mesh (=probably unrecyclable) where I live, these were straight off a tree though.

An expert on Climate Change said our country will probably become somewhat like Macedonia, so no wonder I'm now dreaming of even fig trees and such (my cousin has one).

The lemon was our neighbours', they wanted to throw it away since it had a 'stroke' or something like that and they thought it would die in the winter. But hey, it's still alive!
First winter with us, it didn't have any fruits, but it survived. Now, it has small lemons. Maybe next year, even bigger? :)

Update: the neighbours are very impressed the tree actually had lemons! (The tiny fruit shriveled up and fell off when they had it!- And first when we had it too)
I googled up lemon-growing online and the key is to ignore them most of the time, only watering when really dry. Apparently the flood and washing of leaves (it has tiny pests on them again) also did it good, and it seems to do better in not-so-hot weather...

Hey everyone!

It's been a while since I last posted. Many things have happened inbetween.

As I checked the stats, I was amazed that so many people still read (or briefly come upon) this blog. People from countries like Russia, India and Indonesia have come upon this blog - I have no idea how! lol

I started this blog as a personal experiment how to make less waste (zero waste would be ideal), my journey went over how a community can make less waste and what can be done nationally and internationally - globally.

A LOT can be done. A LOT also means it can lead to overwhelm soon. Especially if you're a scanner or 'multipotentialite' interested in many things, like I am.

So how do you go from 'OMG how do I do this?' to being read internationally (even when no longer posting much) and having a national and international impact?

Well, maybe I'll tell you or maybe I won't! Stay tuned! :)
