We didn't really have a garden this year. We did have basil, sage, garlic chives, oregano and rosemary. But that's the herb garden and that stuff either never dies or re-seeds itself every year. My favorite kind of garden.
All we had this year was the lemon tree. Given the treatment the tree received from the plumbers digging up the yard and nearly ripping it out of the ground I'm surprised we got any lemons at all.
Boy did we get lemons. We've delivered three grocery bags full of lemons to our respective offices, I've got two gallon zip lock bags full of lemon ice cubes in the freezer and my husband brought this in the house last night:
Yes, that is a bag full of Meyer lemons. And this is what the counter looked like:
Four bags. We actually ended up with five bags total and the tree is bare for the winter. It probably needs a break.
If you need me I'll be in the kitchen, figuring out what to do with nine thousand lemons.
