The Last of the Meyer Lemons

I love Meyer Lemons, so it was a sad day last week when I finally harvested the last of them off of our dwarf tree. This was the first year that the little guy produced any lemons and we did pretty well with a total harvest of 19.

But as you can see, all is not lost. There are new buds on the branches and new leaves growing. We did a little spring feeding with some citrus fertilizer (E.B. Stone) and are hoping to see some little lemons starting in another month or so. But, patience is a virtue and we will have to wait till late fall or early winter for another crop. Or maybe, we will get very lucky and we will get a second crop in the summer. Time will tell.
