Wisconsin Lemon Tree


For 23 years in a row, I've lugged this lemon tree inside for the winter. (I cringe at how old that makes me sound). Many times the tree has been with out a lemon, but this year we've been blessed with a whopping 19 lemons!

So, sometime in dreary February, when the lemons will finally be ripe, we will be enjoying authentic Wisconsin lemon bars ... with real Wisconsin butter of course. Definitely something to look forward to!

Hi, I saw your tweet and had to look; I am from WI, in CA now, and your lemon tree is so green.
Today is the last day to post a comment on my blog to enter to win a Christmas gift basket (value $200), on the last day of my book's blog tour.
Nice to tweet with you,
Terra
