want to share with you a project small DIY I am quite proud of. Some time ago there was a very popular link on Pinterest about making your own lemon plant from scratch. And let me say I am very proud to tell you I have done just that! I simply followed the picture tutorial found here and am now a proud owner of two small plants.
I started with four seeds from a Lemon. To be honest I have no idea what type of lemon I used (although I have read one should use Meyer organic lemons). I soaked the seeds for a couple of days and then cut off the squishy protective layer. I put them between two layers of the thicker kitchen tissues, and soaked them. I placed them in a plastic ziplock bag, taped them to the window and waited.
When they all had sprouted I removed them into a vase with soil (again, no idea what kind). Then I placed them in the kitchen window sill.
I watered it when I felt like it, and I started seeing two small sprouts with leaves coming up. I then left two weeks on holiday to Spain and when I came back they had really grown. Now they are starting to get “big” and I am super excited to have grown something from a seed!
