Lemons in Winter
One thing on my to-do list, during my day of domestic duties, was to hopefully pick lemons from our Meyer Lemon tree. Sadly they still aren't quite ready - they are so beautifully yellow & smell so good - cannot wait to juice them & turn them into lemon bars (one of my favorites). We may not have the beautiful winter scenes with snow & mountains, etc., but we are able to have lemons in winter (along with limes (hopefully my next tree to plant) and mandarin oranges (new tree still looks sad)). I guess I could call them organic as well since I don't do anything to help them - no pesticides, no special fertilizer, etc - the tree survives on its own.
My lemon bar recipe is very basic - just can't mess with the natural sweetness of the lemon... I'll share it if anyone is interested. Anyone else growing something ymmy this winter?
