Today my first Meyer Lemon of the year was ready to pick. Several Oranges were ripe too. Here is the bounty.
Okay, maybe it isn't really a bounty per se, but that lemon is gorgeous. I wish you could smell what I smell.
Here is the 'bounty' again with a Christmas gift I received for scale. Okay, I just wanted to put a tractor in the picture.
My grandmother grew Meyer lemons outdoors in Northern California. I'm not sure how they survived, but I remember lots of lemons on her small trees in front of the house. I would love to have a greenhouse, but I'm afraid the wind would destroy it at our cabin. - Margy
That citrus is pretty special. You are very lucky to have a greenhouse. This post makes me excited to get our greenhouse up and running.
It must be nice to grow them in California.
Thank you Joan.
I can't wait to see it!!!
I have a small lemon tree which is supposed to bear fruit even in the southern UK. It produces the most gorgeous smelling tiny white flowers and I've even had tiny green lemons … but then, every time, someone comes and knocks them off. So frustrating. I still have dreams of growing my own lemons but make do with smelling the leaves and flowers in the meantime.
Looks like a bounty to me, Erin! Congratulations on your success. P. x
