Mary - does the area under the tree get enough sunlight for zukes which need sun? Also, you will have to water even more because the zuke plants will compete with the lemon tree for water. If you have been successful growing the zukes in pots, I would keep it that way.

Doris, now that that house has fallen thru, here are some other things to consider:
Given that your DH has medical issues, how close will you be to a hospital? Given our age, how close are you to grocery stores, post office, Dr appointments and other things as we get older to which we may need to walk or use public transportation rather than drive? Does the community have elder services available? How much outside maintenance will be required?
