I know it’s not really Lemonade season but it’s Meyer Lemon season here right now. People who have the Meyer trees are graced with an abundance of fruit every year. We have several trees but they’re young. We only got about a dozen lemons from them this year. Hopefully next year, we’ll get more.
Someone Don knows is out of state right now and his lemon trees were bending over with fruit. He called Don at work the other day (we were having temps in the 20′s that night) and told him to go to his house that afternoon and pick at least 5 gallons of lemons.
Don & Chris got there and his wife said to pick it all! She already had a porch full. Don gave Mother & Vanessa a 5 gallon bucket full and also gave their neighbors some. He brought home about 3—5 gallon buckets of lemons! I have lemons everywhere! The house smells delicious.
I’ll be busy for a few days. I’m going to slice & dehydrate some and I plan to peel the rind from some for dehydrating and later grind that to powder. Then, I’m going to juice the rest & freeze the juice in ice cube trays and store in the freezer in big zip-lock bags. This may take a bit!
