You think I have enough lemons? I only hope that the frost that is forecast will not wipe them out. Anybody want to come and get some?

When we were up at our friends' place in the Hunter a couple of weeks ago John and Deirdre had hundreds of lemons on their trees. I've got 40 sitting here in my fruit bowl and big glass vase! I love lemons and I'm with rescuer,
"Lemon tree, very pretty and the lemon flower is sweet, but the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat"! Love Chris

I have a big glass bowl of these sitting on my table....not my tree, a friend brought them over.
Your tree looks like my friends, just loaded. Another friend has satsumas hanging,full on her tree like this. Have some of those too. Not only good to eat but pretty to look at too.

What are Satsumas?

Kampfzwerg by Kampfzwerg edited 07 Dec 2017

Satsumas are a japanese hybrid from mandarins and oranges. They are sweet, seedless and easy to peel.

If you are stuck (how glorious) with all those lemons you can juice them and freeze the juice. It looks like you will have enough juice for about a year. That sounds yummy to me. Enjoy.

I always freeze some. Put them into ice cube trays whenever I need some for cooking.

hello dear,
a couple years ago I rescued my flowering quincetree with a cotton bedsheet and a few clothes pegs over night. My neigbour came home very late that evening an got the fright of a lifetime by my wavering white bedsheet. It was late may. This cold period is called "Eisheilige" in Germany. The sheet must be sprayed with cold water to prevent the fruit or blooms to freeze.

I will try that. Did not know about the water. Thank you

It is called Igloo Effect.

We learn more than embroidering and sewing here on Cute. I never heard of spaying with water either.

Kampfzwerg by Kampfzwerg 07 Dec 2017

Several years ago we had a frost period in end of april while my cherrytree blossomed. It was to big to be covered. I sprayed the whole tree with water late that evening. The blossoms were brown next morning but it was enough protection for the pistils to develop fruit. That year it was the only cherrytree with plenty of fruit in the whole area.

My DH eats at least 2 lemons a day. Wish I could come and get some. Rather a long journey from S. Africa 😀

I think you need to get your lemon recipes out. Can you cover the bush with sacking to keep the frost at bay..
