Both of my kumquat trees are presenting right now, so I have plenty of them I just got a new mint plant so I will have that in the yard. Key lime is producing and I have a soda maker and just got the co2 filled today. Vodka and Gran Mariner on the shelf. As long as the cucumber lasts, it's made in the shade.
