Lemon tree NEEDS outside!

Hey, I heard you guys there - on whatever you call your ranch there. Anyway, I did listen to a pod cast where you folk on the "permies ranch" were having dinner and discussing how you built a permies pond and earth wall and all the necessary stuff so you can grow Lemon trees out side. Now, I do have an understanding that Paul is VERY particular in HOW plants are planted ect.

Here is the question of this post, I have a three year old lemon tree that I grew from seed in a pot in my apartment. I would like to have it be able to live outside. Would you have any interest - or be willing - to let me plant this tree in your lemon tree area, even though it would of course be transplanted instead of growing there from seed? You mentioned Paul, that you wanted a contest this summer where people would plant both grown tomato plants and tomato plants from seed to compare how each fared. Though, I imagine you would rather have lemon trees growing on your property started from seed, rather than having a lemon tree transplanted. But perhaps planting this tree that I've grown in my apartment could demonstrate the difference between transplanted trees and tree grown from seed.

It would be cool to see this tree grow huge. Let me know if you'd be willing to adopt this tree on your - whatever it's called - warm climate fruit tree pond place.

She still doesn't approve of my superhero lifestyle. Or this shameless plug:
