I showed you my little Meyer Lemon tree in June, with blooms and small lemons. Well, who knew that it would take this long for them to finally be edible LEMONS?! I got a dozen off this container tree. I used the first one in my tea and ate half of it like an orange (in fact, it is a cross between a mandarin orange and lemon) and now I’m wondering . . . lemon pie, lemon bars, lemonade, lemon cake, maybe lemon chicken.
There are about 6 new ones on the tree about the size of a pea and some blooms. This weekend I will be putting the tree in a new pot and into the greenhouse for the winter. Maybe by spring we’ll be eating lemons again!
