I have been having so much fun this week.
I have been cleaning the duck pen and watching those silly ducks is always a treat. (cleaning their pen stinks, literally but they are funny birds). I decided to plant a peach tree in the duck pen. The peach tree I decided on is called a Florida prince peach. (It only needs 150 hours under 45 degrees a year which is PREFECT for our climate) This peach tree is a high fruit producer. So back to planting this tree. I wanted to plant it in the duck pen so there would be shade in the summer and the fruit that would drop, the ducks could eat. Can't beat free food right? Here's my ducks and the stick of a peach tree in the back.
I also have been harvesting lemons from our lemon tree. So far I (Riley, Jada, and I) have juiced 3.6 gallons of lemon juice and 4 cups of lemon zest! My fingers are raw and cut up but it is so great for our family to have lemon juice for Lemonade (recipe on previous post) and lemon zest for seasonings. We have more lemons to go, looking forward to trying to figure out lemon meringue pie that we can have. Anyone have suggestions?
I hope you have a productive week. I will be scraping my fingers on lemon tree thorns and lemon grater, All for such a great cause a drink I dont' mind my kids having. :)
Here's to you having a productive week too. Cheers
