When life gives you lemons…

We have a prolific lemon tree in the garden and at the moment it's branches are weighed down with an abundance of the golden yellow, deliciously fragrant orbs. It's not a large tree, as far as fruit trees go, but each year we are blessed with more lemons than we can use and give them away in bags to family, friends and neighbours. I think lemon trees love the sandy soil we have in this part of Melbourne as they seem to do quite well - but it also lives next to the compost bin which may help explain it's success.
