It’s Citrus Time Again

I wrote lemons on the grocery list a few days ago and hubby reminded me we don’t need to go to the store for them right now.

I know it’s hard to tell how big it is, but we pulled over 1,000 lemons off this tree last March. I juiced until there wasn’t a non-sticky spot in our kitchen. We filled freezer baggies with 3-cup portions to make fresh lemonade. I also cook with it all the time. I plan to learn to make lemon meringue pie this year, which is one of hubby’s favorites.

In addition to the lemon tree, we have a grapefruit, an orange and a tangerine tree in our back yard. I’ve pulled two baskets of tangerines off so far.

They’re pretty tasty, but just not big enough to make them worth juicing.

As I was running in and out of the back door, the dogs finally got tired of following me and just watched through the glass.

whatcha doing mom

Yep, it’s citrus time again!

    Always warms my heart to see the boys’ cute little faces.

  2. They look like the two little old men who sit on a bench outside the barbershop in every small town, trading jokes and watching the world go by. : )
