|Seedlings in March this year|
This is what they look like now...

Well, this time, they are much bigger, and I was thus able to pinch of a couple of leaves, in order to smell, and correctly identify them.
They are not lemon tree sapling, they are... baby naartjie (mandarin) trees :) Happy Days! We now have both lemons and naartjies growing on the farm.
And, as for the lemon trees I planted in January, this is the progress they have made...

they're peeping above the shade cloth.
Even the 2nd row has flourished beautifully :)

And that, MKid, is the reason we always tell you to put your shoes on as soon as you wake up in the morning, and to leave them on all day :)
