This lemon tree was the only productive thing on our 5 acres when we bought this place nine years . It's been a pretty good tree since, but this year with all the rain we've had, the lemons are fat and heavy with juice. The best ever crop.
The tree looks are bit sparse at the bottom. This would be because the sheep gave it an unscheduled prune a few weeks ago.
Speaking of sheep, our little hand-fed lamb is going great guns. Mum Susy continues to be a write-off as a mother. Very weird, because her mothering instincts to date have always been fine. Who knows? We don't.
Today is fine but the August winds are blowing hard. I had plans to be outside but I've changed my mind. I can work outdoors in the rain, no problem. In fact, I quite like it. But wind sets my teeth on edge.
