Mike and I planted two lemon trees in our backyard over 4 years ago and we have yet to see a single piece of fruit. We tried planting them in different parts of the yard and used numerous soils but they would not grow. We had no idea what we were doing wrong so we came to the conclusion that we had bought duds and went to the nursery to buy another. This time we passed on the tiny $10 trees and went for a big boy – one that actually had a good amount of flowers/buds. We planted it in the Fall and look at it now!! WE GOT LEMONS!!!
The first thing I made was lemonade because it was finally warm and not raining last weekend. This recipe is a bit unique. I’d never thought to make lemonade in a blender. It gave it a nice frothy consistency. This can taste just like the stuff you get at Hot Dog on a Stick™ if you add more grenadine (which I did on my second batch).
We have been on a unintentional Ina Garten cooking spree lately.
