life on the Oregon frontier just went environmental

In this photo you can see how very brown it is now. But no snow! We've had great, sunny weather up into the 40s during the day, single digits at night. We are now harvesting our five lemons. They are so sweet, very juicy and very thin skins. They smell almost like evergreens. We only have two left. Boo Hoo. It is a Meyer Dwarf Lemon Tree and took three years to produce but well worth it. I got mine from Gurney's catalog. I'd recommend trying to grow your own lemons. The other plants basking in the sun are basil I brought in from outside. I made basil pesto last week. Almost as good a chive pesto.
