My Ponderosa Lemon Outdoes Itself

IMG_5880

This little tree has given me two lemons this year!  I’ve set a normal sized lemon in the pot so you can appreciate the size of these behemoths. I haven’t quite decided what to do with this bounty.  I could make lemon curd as I did in 2014.  Here’s the link to that post for full directions.  Here’s the link to the lemon cake I made to accompany that lemon curd.  Or I could make lemon marmalade as I describe fully in this post from 2012.  The 2012 post shows my little tree in its youth, just a stick and yet it gave me one big lemon that year.  It has continued to bless me each year and it’s always fun to make something special to celebrate its effort. (I’m leaning toward the marmalade…)

Fox Update-Final

M2E64A70L0-117.1080017-117.1080017

I’ve decided that our fox is cured of mange. Here’s the fox getting the hot dog and looking just as fluffy as the other fox with the exception of the tip of its tail.  I’ve decided that it is probably permanently damaged.  I ended up successfully administering six doses of Ivermectin, falling between the veterinarian’s recommended three doses and the eight doses recommended by a British Fox Preservation Association on line.  I’ll continue putting out hot dogs for a while at least.

Here’s my first shot of our mangy fox taken on September 20th.  I feel so good!
