preserved lemons

If you drop enough hints, sometimes your wife might do something extra sweet like start a couple batches of preserved lemons for you. She used this Food in Jars post for the method.

After they finish, I just have to figure out how to eat them!

And a bonus chicken shot for good measure and because apparently the weather forecast isn’t favorable for some time to come.

the little Meyer lemon that could

I have been eyeing dwarf citrus trees for a couple years, not sure I could even keep one alive inside the house in our climate. Finally this year when we were seed potato shopping I came across some little Meyer lemon trees and Jess convinced me to just go for it.

It mostly sits in our bay window on a cute vintage stand we found for cheap. The thing has barely even made it outside for many field trips to sun itself out there with the dogs, and yet something is happening.

It’s making teeny, tiny Meyer lemons.

It’s making a whole lot of them. We still have a long way to go, but this is encouraging!
