It wasn’t raining today, in fact it was a lovely sunny day. So I decided that it was time to relieve my tiny lemon tree of its fruit. A lot of the fruit had the powdery black dust on them so I had to wash them, all of them. Then I put them outside to air dry in the sun.
Of course the chooks now had wind of the fact that I was outside so a riot began in the chook shed until I let them out. They like the little lemon tree and probably thought that I was being mean to it.
This is the little tree on the right and it is a prolific producer. They are only small usually but quite sweet in a lemony sort of way. We have picked lemons as we have needed them all year but today I did a real harvest as more smaller lemons are still coming.
After all, there’s only so much gin and tonic two people can drink……….
