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…

#25 –  EAT YOUR COLORS

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?
