Rubber Duck Dreaming of Future Gin & Tonics With Lime

Rubber Duck is trying to convince Joey to buy a lime tree. Fragrant blossoms that turn into limes that are the tastiest limes for Bombay Gin and Schweppes Tonic. Or skip the tonic, just gin on ice and a nice fact wedge of lime ripened on the tree.

After spending the winter in the dusty old shop the lime tree is so happy to be outside in the fresh air and sun. A blast of fertilizer a few weeks ago and it is already cranking out the flowers for this summer’s gin & tonics, and pad thai.

  • …and limes have tripled In price in the last few months, so it is a good investment too!

      It may be a decade (or longer if anti-science gets in the way) before the new GMO lime can be on the market so I might go pick up two more trees. Can’t have gin without a nice slice of lime.
