Did you know you should never pick lemons between 11 am and 3 pm? Apparently, if you pick the fruit during that time, it dries out the tree and the lemon you pick. This could be an old wives' tale... or highly researched... who knows? Kevin spent some time pruning again today and some of our lemon trees are going to require some merciless chopping. I wonder if all that willy-nilly picking at all hours of the day accelerated their poor condition. We have some lovely, healthy lemon trees, too, but others need some real tender, love and care. It's going to be be one of those 'cruel to be kind' sort of thing.
