these are just about the cutest little gems ever!
whether you have an acre
or just a great little patio...
as long as you have sunlight
you can grow Kumquats
we have many varieties of citrus in our orchard
but sadly not a single Kumquat
right now the blossoms are peaking and
the new fruit is forming
the bees are doing their thing too...
and since orange is in
both in the garden
in the home,
and on the runway
lets get some Kumquats
tangerine happens to be the Pantone
color of the year
orange is a very Tuscan inspired color
works well with many other colors
one of the nice things about Kumquats
is they grow in almost all zones
and do very well as a potted plant
I have been thinking about what to put
in big galvanized pots on our newly built deck
and have decided on Kumquats
in addition to being a really great looking ornamental plant
the fruit is really tasty
and can be used for jams and relishes...
so off to the Nursery
what will the color of the year be in 2013
you just never know
