Update: Not dead yet!

My adorable little Meyer lemon tree bore its first ripe lemon last week. It was teeny tiny, only about an inch across. When it turned yellow, I plucked it off of the branch and sliced it open - there was very little flesh, mainly rind, but what there was smelled heavenly, like flowers and lemons mixed together. But not in a floor polish kind of way - just fresh and clean and springy.

Now the tree has two new lemons growing out of a new branch, and three little branches have sprouted from its trunk. I'll be transferring it to a deeper, wider pot this weekend, and I can't wait to see what it does with all that new real estate.
