Small but colourful September harvest

2 Oct

The onions have been curing for a while, I just couldn’t decided what to do with them so finally putting them in the fridge.

Besides onions, there are some cherry bell peppers from a plant that survived from last year, some jalapeño chili peppers, tomatoes, lemons and tiny eggplants I decided to harvest early.

First ever homegrown pink lemonade lemons!

2 Oct

Started my Autumn clean up today and checked up on my little lemons which seem to have been growing for a whole year. The peel felt soft, like old lemons so I decided it was time to harvest.

Look at these cuties!

My tree is still pretty small and unhealthy looking but at least I got three little lemons.

I was pleased to see this when I cut one open.

Lots of juicy flesh!

I decided to make a butter lemon drizzle by heating lemon juice, butter and sugar. Tasted so delightful on waffles!
