Even more fruit!
Our apartment is quickly becoming a fruit tree orchard, but that hasn't stopped me from adding to the collection.
The newest additions include a lime, a pineapple, a passion fruit, and an apple. Who knew that limes were thorny? I pulled the lime tree out of its box and stabbed myself!
The passion fruit showed up and looked pretty pathetic, but it's really started to take off! It grows by the hour and sends off shoots that cling to everything and make the cutest curly-q's.
The pineapple was similar to the passion fruit, showing up looking sad, but it's throwing off a few new leaves.
And the apple seems to be thriving on the porch and has lots of new leaves.
All of these are in 12'' pots with regular potting soil and are being watered regularly and I have some fertilizer on the way.
Oh, and the banana plant is putting out new leaves too. We should be making fruit salad soon! :)
