Look at those gorgeous Meyer lemons! Just look! And imagine how lovely they smell in the sunny window. There are actually five on my little lemon tree, but one is on the other side and I thought it would be much more impressive to get a picture of four all together. I've been coaxing these babies along since they were blossoms back in July. It takes a long time to grow citrus up here in Maine! All summer this little Meyer lemon tree sat on my porch enjoying the sunshine and the honey bees. In September with teeny tiny green lemons on the branches I moved it inside to the sunniest window in the house. And I waited. And waited. And waited. And now the lemons are ripe and I just have to decide what to do with these beautiful yellow treasures!
How appropriate to find this on The Kitchn! Lots of delicious ideas!
