Loaded with Lemons!

Our Meyer Lemon tree is loaded this year and they're almost all ripe now.  With the exception of a few late blossoms and tiny baby lemons.  Aren't they beautiful?!

I'm so happy to have them again!  We used them all up last year and have been missing them like crazy!  We love using them for lemonade, toddies, mixed drinks, salad dressings, fish, squeezing into soup and over rice, and so much more.  Meyer lemons are sooo delicious!

Your tree is so beautiful &
bountiful! No other lemon tastes
as delicious as a Meyer lemon.
I'm sooo jealous---I live at
4800 ft. next to the Los Padres
Nat. Forest---no lemon trees for
me. I have lilacs instead.
Enjoy your lemons: hope they'll last all year.
I enjoy your blog very much.

I have just harvested my lemons from my potted tree - I baby it and love it! The most I've gotten from it were 29! This year's harvest is more modest (12), but I treasure every one.

These look delicious. I have considered trying a potted tree. I do love lemons.

It is beautiful. I remember when we moved from the east coast west we spent 2 1/2 years in the Bay area while building a home in OR - our yard in CA had lemon trees - what a luxury - I was amazed at what could grow there.

I just received about 150 meyer lemons from my sister. Her tree was loaded too. My freezer is FULL! I was still using some from last year.
