Using www.random.org the winner of the Meyer Lemons is Johanna who said,
“My sister helped me start a garden last year, and I loved having so much fresh produce right at my door. Here’s a list of what I plan on having again this year: Tomatoes, cucumbers, black eyed peas, sugar snap peas, okra, and string beans. My herb garden has rosemary, thyme, basil (when it gets a little warmer), oregano, and chives.
I’d like to recreate a recipe I had at Union Square Cafe: Ricotta Gnocchi with Meyer Lemon Butter Sauce. I’m also a sucker for my mom’s lemon square recipe.”
Thanks Johanna! Your lemons will be on their way soon!
As a follow up to my last gardening post, many thanks to those who offered advice about the big fat grubs in the garden. They were indeed Japanese Beetle grubs. We sourced some beneficial nematodes and I’ve added them to the soil. Hope it works!
The raccoons are still doing their night time work, despite my best efforts to dissuade them. I built a cage over one of the rectangular beds out of rubber coated chicken wire. What did they do? They climbed on top and pulled apart the sections of chicken wire to get their little paws inside. I wish I had video of that. it’s a little hard to admit, but they are clever little monsters.
