Tie Up a Loose End!

Well, Leslie from Comfrey Cottages here is your kaffir lime (Citrus hystrix). It was literally down to one leaf. The Herbal Husband brought it back from the dead. Would not eat this leaf. It is similar to the bay laurel. It is very fiberous and is tough to chew! Really hope the weather forecast is dead wrong tonight! Start praying! Off to help get set up for the master gardeners! Talk to you later!

Yes, unfortunately Leslie it does have to overwinter inside! I also have a hobbit house with lots of stuff not kitties though! The Herbal Husband found a kitten on our front walk this morning! So I guess we have outside kitties! LOL! Thanks as always for your interest in my blog. A big hug for you, your hubby, the kids and your kitties (a very long distance one for them)!
