This may be the best year yet for my Meyer Lemon crop! I took six off the tree and there are -- 24 -- left!!!!! I "heart" my Meyer Lemon Tree! Of course, I will be faced with 30 lovely lemons all within a week or so - oh, poor me...
This tree is about four years old - I've had it for about three years. Pretty soon I will have to re-pot it, as most of the nutrients in the soil will have been used up. I water it once week, keep it in a sunny spot (it has its own light starting in January) and feed it an organic citrus fertilizer approximately once a month. I measure out the fertilizer the same way I measure when I cook - randomly. As soon as the weather warms up and there's no chance of frost, out she goes.
|Can someone tell me why this refuses to right itself?|
|Poor baby can hardly hold its head up.|
I foresee lemon curd, candied lemon peel, frozen lemon juice....loverly.
