I was thinking the same thing...I spend $2ish a piece on them at Whole Foods every week.

Here I am nurturing my indoor lemon tree which to date has provided me four (very delicious and cherished) lemons...

PS holiday - lovely picture of you behind the flowers...

HAHA! That's the birthday I card I gave my wife yesterday. I didnt even notice it was in the pic. Awesome!

And not to brag, but there are about a billion more avocados still in the tree. And my wife is allergic so Im the only one who eats them. Anyone want to trade avocados for bike parts?

We also have a meyer lemon tree out front. And a small redwood. And some other stuff that I have no idea what it is. The lady that lived here before was a plant nut.

Outrageous.

I didnt take any commute pictures today so I'll just share a picture of my work in progress Razesa I'm building to tackle the 96 mile mountainous Grand Fondo at the Sea Otter this Saturday.

I hoping 28mm Grand Bois tires fit. The rear wheel to seat tube clearance isnt much even with the wheel far back in the dropout.
