The 1st Lime!

While outside planting some bulbs this afternoon, I took a quick look at my lime tree and noticed one of the limes was starting to turn from green to a light yellow in one area. It'd been growing for awhile, so I took the color change as a sign that the lime was ripe and ready for picking!

I was a little scared I'd picked the lime too early, but after cutting into it and tasting it, I'm positive it was ready! 

For the size - it was quite juicy. As expected, it was quite tart as well!

I can't wait to pick and use more limes. And for more to start growing!  If I ever get TONS - I will definitely be making a key lime pie. YUM!
