I need a greenhouse, too, but where would I put it? lol

That's funny that you got fruits on your kaffir lime - I have never gotten a single blossom on mine! Like you, I only use the leaves, though I would have used the zest in the curry pastes. I don't think that it's one of those things that is going to start flowering after 15 years, though I have seen descriptions of some hardwood trees that don't start flowering until after 20 or 25 years! And a couple of things that I looked into planting, I decided against, after finding that I may have to wait 6-8 years for my first harvest! I can be patient, with some things, but that's a little too long!

My wife has 2 small ones which are about 4 foot wide X 3 foot deep bought on line. She grows hundreds of chillies in these. It's mid winter here and she's still picking and freezing. I make a hot chilly sauce that uses about 300 chillies. I also use red chillies for red curry paste, and green for green curry paste.
I think she paid about $40 for each of them.
