Lemon Cake Recipe

Harvesting Improved Meyer Lemons today. The greenhouse smells amazing from the fresh citrus here in Ohio. Can you believe it is winter and we are enjoying fresh citrus?

I’m going to use them in this yummy recipe for a sweet dessert to celebrate the weekend.  Nothing beats the taste of fresh lemons…… you’ve got to try these in your home garden not only because they are tasty but because it is a beautiful plant to grow.
