This weekend, a small dream came true. I got my very own lemon tree! I opened our front door several times this evening just to admire it. I hope we can take good care of it and that it will bring us fruit for many years.
We had a great afternoon of gardening. We added 3 tomato plants, 4 lavender bushes, and of course, our meyer lemon tree. Today's planting doubled the size of our little experiment in (mostly) container gardening.
After we were done, we made lemonade with homemade basil simple syrup. It was delicious! It's so nice to have such an abundant little herb garden. Hopefully before too long, the lemons will be from home, too!
