Lemon Tree

It's hard to complain about having a lemon tree in your back yard. It's February and I've just made my second pitcher of freshly squeezed lemonade this month. We've also given lemons to several friends and still have plenty more where that came from. I do need to get myself some pruning tools as the tree could use a cut back. I think the lemons will be juicier once the water the roots suck up is not going to the extraneous branches sprouting near the base of the tree. A good lemon juicer would also be a good addition. At present, we are squeezing them with a sppon and our hands. :)
