August 2015

My Meyer lemon gave up its fight after nearly drowning in the previous bed and being relocated 3 times since I bought it 5 years ago.  I don't know whether it was simply moved too often or whether Ecobeds are too moist for citrus.

The Hamlin orange is not as happy as it should be after a year in the other new Patio Ecobed, but it is just coming into new leaf.  If it recovers and flourishes, I will replace the Meyer Lemon with a new one, meanwhile I am growing cauliflowers in that bed.
