Day 70 Meyer Lemons
The first plant we put in the ground when we built our home in El Granada was a Meyer Lemon tree. It was in a five gallon container and a it was a 24 inch plant. Today, fourteen years later the tree is close to 18 feet tall and produces hundreds of lemons every month. I've learned to make meyer lemon curd, meyer lemon marmalade and of course, meyer lemon cake. They look especially lovely in a blue bowl.
