RoseTampa's Journal, 03 April 2018

My first lemon from my new tree! I have a total of 4 of them that I could find. Yay! I only got this small tree in October or November. It's already grown over a foot and I'm not supposed to have fruit for at least a year. My green beans are already 4 feet tall in tendrils. I can't wait to eat fresh pick ones fairly soon. My tiny tim tomatoes are producing my first tomatoes that are almost ready to eat! Now I'm just hoping everything comes in before it gets to hot and will die. Yep, it gets too hot to garden for about 3 months and plants do not do well. I can start some indoors over the summer in my Aerogardens (love all of mine!)
I found out I'm better off not logging everything I eat. I was too obsessed with logging food and as long as I keep myself in ketosis I'm fine. If I start to slip I will log. Otherwise as long as I keep on here and stay in ketosis I'm good. I want to lose weight but I'm not pushing myself to lose it as fast as possible. A pound a week is fine (average). It may take longer but this is for life and health, not about the weight anymore.

Thank you! Planting starts usually in the middle of February here, this year has been messed up. I'm loving gardening, even with the raised boxes. They turned out better looking than I thought. I actually have a nice sized backyard but my dog is such a psycho that the only thing I planted back there is some spaghetti squash on the fence.

Dang dog! My dog took out one of my three spaghetti squashes. :( I'll try and trellis the front a little bit to protect the other two. I'll try to seed another one (or two) and cross my fingers.

I had a bunch of lemon plants last year and we had to move back to Fort Worth area to help take of my husband's mom. Long story short, we live in an RV now and I gave them all away. I didn't really have room plus I didn't know how to take care of them! Your plants all look amazing! Thanks for the pics.
