When Life Gives You Too Many Lemons

Back in July I wrote a post about the fruit trees in our backyard.  In it, I expressed my profound gratitude for their very existence.  I love being able to pluck a lemon off the tree any time I need some lemon juice or zest.  

But sometimes life gives you too many lemons--way more than any recipe could possibly require.     

And that's when it's time to get a little creative.  You might remember my penchant for filling ice cube trays with fruit.  Well, I've done it again, but this time with lemon juice and now I have two full trays.  That's 28 (2 Tbsp) cubes just waiting to be popped out and put in a recipe or beverage.

I guess maybe there's no such thing as "too many" lemons after all...  



  1. Ooooh this is super similar to a blog post I was working on this weekend! You'll have to keep an eye out for that one too because it's got a slightly different take on the ice cubes!

    Beautiful pictures and an excellent, summery idea!! :)


  2. WOW. First, the pictures are beautiful. The lemons are gorgeous. Second, this is a brilliant idea and use of your lemons. I am totally jealous. Send me some :)

  3. What a great idea! I'll have to remember this when they are on sale, sometimes the price is crazy up here. Thanks for the tip! (Love your lemon tree!)
    Debbie :)

  4. I wish we were able to grow lemon trees. It gets to hot in the summer & too cold in the winter. Now following you! Love the twine diy too!


Comments let me get to know my readers.

They also make me a do a little happy dance every time I open my email.

Don't you want to be a part of that?
