I was out in the yard the other day innocently racking leaves when suddenly I felt a sharp pain on the top of my head.
THUD! I heard.
Looking down at my feet I saw the object of my torment.
Yep, we have a lemon tree growing in our backyard and it's time to pick some fruit. Only one dilemma.
What do I do with all these lemons?
Make treats...that's what!
