When Life Gives You Lemons...

Or more accurately, when your mature, well fertilized lemon tree gives you tons of lemons... You pick and pick and pick. And then you juice and juice and juice. Alan and I juiced 40 quarts of lemon juice. We gave away at least 100 lemons to our neighbors and family and made several pitchers of lemonade for the girls to sell on the street.Courtney and Morgan starting on the low branches. Nicole with one basket of lemons.

CourtneyNicole and her friend Andrea made eight dollars in about 20 minutes. Then I got tired of making the lemonade and made them shut their stand down. But they were so cute selling it.
Got any really good lemon recipes?

Wow, can't wait until our tree produces more lemons. We got a couple boxes full this winter. I love to juice and freeze it too.
Love the pic of you softball senoritas! FUN times! I did go and check out Julie's blog too.

I'm jealous! I love lemons! I made Martha Stewart's--Lime Melt-a-ways. I bet they would be good with lemon instead of limes.

Orange is a very intimidating color, but yellow is my favorite...if you need someone to take lemons off your hand..I will always be willing to share your wealth.. :)
