This year, our lemon tree has been quite late in providing us with the eagerly awaited fruit. There are many lemons on the tree, however, most are still quite green. It could be worse. Last year, we didn’t get very many lemons at all. So it was a great feeling to see a few lemons turning and ready for picking. We will be keeping a vigilant eye out for more yellow than green as we go further into Autumn. Our goal is to have all the lemons off the tree before the first cold snap, which could be in November or possibly as late as December. The important thing is to enjoy this harvest as much as we can, with late season lemonade, and slicing lemons for tea and other recipes.
