My lemon my lemon tree / Mi limón mi limonero [ENG-ESP]

in Proof of Brain5 months ago

Five years ago I started composting vegetable scraps from food and plants on the terrace. Among the vegetable scraps are avocado pits, oranges, pistachio shells, peanuts and nuts and of course lemon. Many seeds germinate in the composter or in the pots. One of the seeds that sprout most frequently are lemon and avocado seeds.

Hace 5 años empecé a hacer compost con los restos vegetales de la comida y de las plantas de la terraza. Entre los restos vegetales hay huesos de aguacate, naranjas, cáscaras de pistachos, cacahuetes y nueces y por supuesto limón. Muchas semillas germinan en el compostador o en las macetas. Una de las semillas que más frecuentemente brota son las de limón y las de aguacate.

Right now I have a lemon tree that is 4 years old. It was one of the first ones I transplanted into a pot and it is not yet bearing lemons. It seems that lemon trees start giving lemons when they are 5 or 6 years old. Hopefully this year it will give lemons, we'll see.

Ahora mismo tengo un limonero con 4 años de edad. Fue de los primeros que trasplanté a una maceta y todavía no da limones. Parece ser que los limoneros comienzan a dar limones con 5 ó 6 años de edad. Con un poco de suerte este año dará limones, ya veremos.

I have tried to have more lemon trees but all the ones I have tried since then have not made it through the first winter. This year with how warm the winter has been here, I hope that some of these five small lemon trees will make it through their first winter.

He intentado tener más limoneros pero todos los que he intentado después no han superado el primer invierno. Este año con lo caluroso que está siendo el invierno aquí, espero que alguno de estos cinco limoneros pequeños consiga superar su primer invierno.

It seems to me that, if one intends to grow the plants for food, the best bet is to get the seed stock from a local grower rather than gambling on kitchen scrap.

The local grower should know what grows best in a region.

Even worse, much of the food from the store has been genetically or otherwise modified.

While it is fun to get things for free. The amount paid for the seed stock helps support local growers. Local growers are usually active in the local horticulture community.

Thanks. I support local growers by buying the lemons I need at local markets. A potted lemon tree is not going to give me all the lemons I eat throughout the year. The climate here is ideal for growing citrus fruits such as oranges, lemons and grapefruit. I do it out of curiosity and to try one day a lemon from my terrace.

I admit, the main reason for my comment was that I've encountered numerous youtube videos and spam messages claiming that people can grow food from food scraps.

People who follow this advice are likely to become frustrasted and give up on gardening.

Thank you very much for your advice, but this is not my case.

That is a nice lemon tree. Hopefully it will give you some lemons this year.
Thanks for sharing this, it's helpful and motivational for me while also growing a lemon tree. Mine is very young still but is pretty healthy.
I'm growing under lights so it will be interesting to see the difference.
For your climate not being perfect for this plant you're doing a great job!

Thanks my friend. I too am interested in seeing how a lemon tree grown with artifical lights grows. Hopefully this year I make lemonade :)
