Homegrown Lemons

May 22nd, 2018

I purchased this meyer lemon tree a year or two ago to add to my collection of potted citrus. It bloomed last year and set 9 lemons. Considering I have a lemon tree that’s over 10 years old and has only set 1 lemon, I was AMAZED.

I’ve been harvesting the lemons and using them in drinks. It’s such a wonderful feeling to plug a lemon straight from the tree and squeeze it into some fizzy water.

Even though I’m still harvesting ripe lemons, the plant is getting ready to bloom once again. Now if only my other citrus trees would be this productive.

What fun things are you growing and harvesting?

    Susy, this has been a frustrating garden year for me. I don’t really have much planted yet. The weather here in Nebraska has just not cooperated with planting. Potatoes and cabbage are all that’s in the ground. The strawberries are in bloom so hopefully, I’ll be able to harvest a few of them before the birds move in.

    Have a great lemon harvesting day.
