On July 13th I wrote about harvesting lemons from my tree - and I posted this photo of all the pips I got from those lemons. Well I popped them into the fridge, and, with everything else I've been doing, I promptly forgot about them.

Are they viable?
I popped them, guiltily and hastily, into a bit of water, left them for a couple of hours, and Voilà - plumped up lemon pips!

I'll let you know...
But, have you noticed - when one buys oranges or naartjies (tangerines) these days, they often don't have any pips in them whatsoever. Is that because the farmers don't want us propagating our own orange / naartjie trees?
'Cos I know how LOL
