When we moved to our home 4 years ago, there was a little lemon tree in the corner of our backyard. As we shuffled things around, built a deck and took out some plants, we decided to move the lemon tree. It sat for over a year in a pot at the suggestion of a gardening friend, and we pulled off any buds to let it conserve energy until we found a suitable spot for it. We eventually re-planted it about a year ago.
I walked past it the other day to see our first lemons! They seemed to appear out of no where. One day I noticed one, a week later there was another.
Tonight we used half of one in these ginger soba noodles to which we added cabbage, broccoli and corn, as well as some tamari. I didn’t have any tarragon so used thyme and coriander instead. We fried some nice crispy tofu to go with the noodles. Delicious!
There is something getting at the leaves though, and I am no gardener. Any ideas?
