From little things big things grow

A year ago we planted some citrus and this year they have giving us some lemons. I was not sure if they were going to produce fruit because they are in pots but no they have done well and we got fruit.

We did not have enough lemons to make a mojito but we had enough to make the next best thing Lemon cake.

What a great way to start the first day of Winter.
