The lemons are ready! Now comes the incessant juicing and freezing of this liquid gold. Now begins the drooling over lemon meringue pie. Now begins the obsession over lemon bars and cookies. I love my lemon tree. 

It may have the huang long bing (HLB) aka citrus greening, but it has given me 50-60 lemons last year and will bear the same amount of fruit, if not more, this year. And the fruit is perfect and sweet, for lemons!

It has earned itself another year of life.
