The Kumquat Tree!

Greetings! I hope you are almost ready for Christmas!! :) It's coming so fast...

Today I want to share photos and a story of the beloved kumquat tree with you! Technically, it is my significant other, Jon's tree...

(It is currently a houseplant!)

Jon rarely eats fruit, but he loves kumquats!! So I got him this tree earlier this year as a housewarming gift.

However, for whatever reason, it was not doing so well in his backyard. (Perhaps it was because he wouldn't water it every day?) ;) Anyways, we moved it to my house so I could pay more attention to it...

Get this: When we got it from the nursery, it had about 10 small kumquats on it. After a month of being at his house, almost all had fallen off. The very next day after transplanting it to my backyard, there were 30 kumquats!!! Granted, they were smaller than my pinky nail, but they were still kumquats!

It is currently neighboring the Christmas tree. :) It will go back outside when spring arrives.

Do you have any "outside plants" that become houseplants in the winter?
