Crop diminished by the drought, blooms and heads smaller;
flavor still excellent!!!!
We are celebrating the first lemon harvest of 2014!!!
a toast to another crop
brussell sprouts seared with olive oil
halibut with lemon caper sauce
a satisfying end to a productive day!!!
The lemons have been picked and trucked off to the packing house, the summer fruit trees are beginning to drop their leaves, as are the sycamores, the leaves on the berry vines are turning color. Just as the orchard is transitioning into dormancy and fall……
hot temperatures over the past fortnight have caused some of the apples to drop and bake right on the ground
time to bring them inside to enjoy
perhaps in a pie,
or simply sliced with a bit of cheese
