Day 37: Meyer Lemons

When we moved into our El Granada home in 1997 the first thing I planted in our front yard was a Meyer lemon tree.  It was in a five gallon bucket and was about 36 inches tall.  Today this tree is roughly 12 feet tall with a wing spread of 12 feet.  It yields hundreds of juicy Meyer lemons each year.  I've learned to make lemon curd, lemon marmalade and lemon pound cake.  Few foods are as versatile.  The Meyer lemon is on the sweet side of lemons, sometimes their smooth skin is almost a pale orange. Blessings on you, Meyer lemon.
