meyer lemon tree

so, i think i have mentioned that geoffrey finally purchased his beloved meyer lemon tree! he was so excited the day we found one for 1/2 off! it looked a bit puny but it was worth the chance! he kept telling me they were so fragrant they were…and he is right! for one little tree it sure smells. i don’t have to be right next to either… take a look.

it will keep on producing lemons. the lemons are not as bitter as a traditional lemon, they are supposedly sweeter! ours is covered with flowers so we  shall see soon!

today for lunch i went out to the gardens and picked fresh greens and herbs and made myself a delicious salad! tossed it with olive oil, vinager, sea salt, coarse ground pepper and grated garlic! soooooooooo y.u.m.m.y!

today’s food rule…


the other night as we were all sitting eating together i pointed out to the kids the different colors that were on our plates and how we were eating a nice healthy meal. i need to work on colors more.

    did you know that fancy NYC chefs think Meyer Lemons are all the rage. They put a run on california producers a few years ago and one could not get a meyer lemon to save ones life. Now who is trendy and hip?
