My Little Orange

I love oranges, especially tangelos and clementines.  They are a staple in my house at all times of the year.  

One of my dreams has always been to have a fruit tree of some kind that I grew from seed.  So naturally, when I found some good looking seeds in one of the oranges I was eating a few months ago, I tried to start them.  Honestly I was not expecting the seed to sprout.  I had tried this many times before with no success, but this time was different. 

 Now I have a baby orange tree sitting on my window sill!!  And yes, I did start it in a dixie cup. My hope is that it will survive our move next month.
