Sweet treats!!!!


Our lemons are nearly ripe! YAY!!! It always seems odd to me that they rippen in Nov and Dec- not exactly lemonade time.
We're getting a few oranges as well, but those trees are a bit younger so produce very little so far.
If you have citrus trees I am told that the time to fertilize is January and February.
So far that's been good advice.

My broomcorn is harvested as well! It's drying now but in a few weeks I'll attempt the ONE broom I'm likely to get out of the whole crop!!!
The animals were not kind to me this year- thus the small crop!
I plan to save seeds and replant- this stuff is beautiful in dried arrangements as well as in brooms!!!!

Autumn,

Oh my gosh, there's nothing better than the taste of a home grown lemon....really makes you wonder what that is that they sell in the grocery stores..:0)

The broomcorn is beautiful!! Can't wait to see the broom you make.

Drop by for PiNk Saturday when you have a moment...

Hugs,
Steph

Those lemons look so good. Great for tea or lemon meringue pie!! My son and his girlfriend made one last Sunday.
