I found these interesting mud "nests" on my #lemon tree today. Not sure what it is. Each are about 5/8" wide. #friendorfoe? #meyerlemon #meyerlemontree #citrus #wildlifewednesday #southerncalifornia 13 November 2019

My first attempt at #limoncello from my #meyerlemon #peel. 😋 I fertilized, pruned and picked a bunch of #lemon s, so why not. #gyo #edible #southerncalifornia #california 26 February 2019

Wow, interesting. I don't drink, but I'll taste! I would definitely try this! Might be good on a hot southern afternoon

A friend gave me some years ago she had made and my mother took to enjoy (which was fine with me). I have always wanted to try making it. It is considered a summer drink, so it should be good. @nikkicasas @lesliecole49 (I'm a taster too) @sushiwaitress @carolgs 💞

Did you use vodka or grain alcohol/everclear? Everclear is so strong I dilute my limoncello 50/50 with simple syrup, but I love the bite that the grain alcohol gives. 😎

I used vodka @sushiwaitress. I have not had it strong before. A syrup with it does sound tasty.

The #meyer #Lemon is all covered for protection against another night of #frost. It doesn't look too good, but an old sheet works just fine. #meyerlemontree #advice #meyerlemon #citrus #southerncalifornia #california 7 February 2019

I found this crazy #mutant while pruning my 🍋 #lemontree. It probably grew this way because it was wedged between some branches. #uglyreallyisbeautiful #lemon #gyo #southerncalifornia #california 29 August 2018

Your wish is granted @jennilm . This is the Mother Dwarf Myer Lemon Tree. It is actually about pushing 6' right now...not so dwarf.

This little tree is so wonderful! It supplies lemons for us as well as three neighbors year round. It is never without fruit! @gjones @KariSamuel @jennilm

I keep my lemon trimmed to about 6' tall. It flowers twice a year so there are almost always lemons on the tree.

You have perfect weather down there, usually😍. I miss SoCal😢. I grew up down there. Went to Capistrano Valley High School for 2 years, before I moved north to Sacramento and finished at Folsom HS.

I do @lovestogarden, but I really miss the beach. I spent most of my time "in school" at the beach. Lol
