I'm hoping for Limes!

We planted a lime tree in our backyard, right after we moved in, almost 4 years ago. It has produced a SINGLE lime in all those 4 years. This year, it appears we might have a bumper crop growing on the tree back there. There are tiny little lime-like bulbs growing all over the tree! I have already started dreaming and planning of all the things I will do with the limes, like:
  • Fresh lime juice for homemade salsa, whenever I need it!
  • Faux Key Lime pie
  • Chicken Tortilla Soup
  • Tequila Lime Chicken
  • Mojitos
  • Margaritas
  • Coronas and limes (I'm beginning to see a trend here!)

Keep growin' ya little suckers!

Does anyone have any great recipes that include limes? Looks like I'm going to have a lot of them to use!

  1. Good for you! I'd give anything to have a bunch of fruit trees growing in my back yard :)
