Lemon tree

Boyfriend has a lemon tree in his backyard which produces like crazy.  There are always lemons weighing down its branches.  Now and then we go out and pick as many as we can; today we got about thirty off the tree, and we didn’t even make a dent considering how many lemons still have to grow and mature.

We used his grandfather’s old electric juicer and got 2.5 liters out of just those thirty lemons.  So awesome!  They’re so flavorful and delicious.  I added some sugar water to some of it to make it a little more palatable.  Boyfriend demanded that we leave the majority of it as it was to use on salad (we make our own dressing with lemon juice, olive oil and salt).  And look how pretty they are:
