CHRISTMAS LEMONS


In January of this year, when we harvested our first few lemons, I wrote about our Meyer Lemon tree.  After  the first fruits were picked, the tree started budding, then blooming, then setting more fruit.  Our second harvest produced 32 large, juicy, slightly tart lemons.  I see a lemon meringue pie in our future.

This is what our tree looked like in January:

This is what it looked like during harvest:

It's already starting to bud again.  We bought a Persian lime tree online in May since the specimens from Lowe's were not to our liking.  It's been growing like crazy, but no buds yet.
