I love lemons. Before moving back here to California I was living in the Sonoran desert near Scottsdale. We had a huge lemon tree outside our kitchen that part of the year gave lemons and part lime - but always fruting. We have a big family but it always had more than we could ever use.
I've been missing that. I'm north of San Francisco. I'm into my third year of a Meyer lemon tree that I planted. Full sun but so far have only gotten a few small lemons each year. Fortunately last year I cut back a tree that was shading my other lemon tree (strangely planted by the previous home owner at the corner of our garage) and now in the middle of winter, it is giving an unexpected abundance of lemons. A couple of days ago at Costco they had these beautiful meyer lemons that were orange in color. So I had to buy them. I'm going to give a shot to these two meyer lemon recipes - the marmalade and the tuiles.

...a man hath no better thing under the sun, than to eat, and to drink, and to be merry...
