The two lemon trees in my backyard have been flourishing. Their branches so heavy with fruit; they are almost touching the ground. I had a dinner party to attend, and that’s when i decided it was time to distribute the lemons to my friends who cook. The Housemate and i rarely cook, and if we do; it usually consists of throwing stuff into the oven to roast or just plain old boiling.
The smaller lemon tree produced really fabulous lemons – nice colour, pleasant smell and very tasty. The larger tree was not as good but then i think it is recuperating. It did not even produce any fruit last year!
Anyhow, a few friends were asking if i had any more lemons to spare. Clearly, i should have done this the past few years, instead of letting the lemons drop onto the ground and rot, and then me having to clear them later on.
I was telling my friends that they had my dog to thank for the bountiful supply of lemons. She was busy keeping them fertilized all year round. Heh.
