Thank you for the offer, Alan! That is kind of you. :)  However, I live in
Southern California, not Arizona. :)  Having a lemon tree in my backyard is
for cooking purposes for a certaincy, but also it is a "I own my own home
FINALLY and by damn, I'm going to have my own lemon tree on my patio." sort of
thing too. :)

Thank you all for the tips on lemon trees.  I could do a google search, but I
feel that getting personal comments from people that grow the trees gives me
better advice than store websites or raw searches.  I think I'll see if I can
find a dwarf eureka at armstrong or one of the other nurseys around here. :) 
If not, I'll go for the lisbon.
