Lemons, The Perfect Citrus

I don’t think that I could ever say enough about the lemon, it’s the perfect citrus.  It has to be my favorite. I was lucky enough to be able to purchase Meyer’s lemon tree this year. Meyer Lemon is a lemon that been kissed with a tangerine.

Recipes that are prepared with lemon juice or lemon zest are super flavorful. Lemons brighten up any dish.

Here’s a picture of my first Meyer lemon tree.  I hope you will watch it grow with me as I take a lemon journey through food and cocktails.  Maybe one day soon I’ll be picking my own lemons.

My Sandbox Herb Garden

 

Image

Having a herb garden is very rewarding. Unlike my hanging herb garden which is for my slightly more delicate herbs, this sandbox type garden is for the hardier herbs like Rosemary and Italian flat leaf parsley. They seem to be able to stand up to the elements better.

Chives and tarragon I plant in the spring because they seem to thrive better. They are also a more seasonal herb and usually have to be replanted yearly.

My mint I keep in a separate pot because it grows like crazy and will overtake the whole garden.
