The freshness of Summer produce

Freshly picked lemons all lovely and yellow and plump,straight from my dear daughters tree.
 So many we have to juice and cut them up to preserve in salt to use all year round until next years harvest.  Delicious preserved lemon sliced onto fish.
One of the nicest things about coming into summer is the bountiful harvest of fresh Summer fruits

I picked the first of the Strawberries today.  Served for breakfast ontop of crunchy cornflakes
and topped with luscious plain thick yoghurt, yum
 Fresh picked greens,to put in a stirfry or salad

It all makes me feel healthy and happy.
I am joining House in the Roses today,for Show off your Cottage Monday

I always feel confused for a minute when I read a post from Australia, then I remember the seasons are opposite ours lol. Your fruits and vegetables are so beautiful. It's so nice to grow your own. I didn't know about preserving lemons in salt that's really great, no waste. Thanks for visiting!

Oh yummy. The lemons and all the fruit and produce is just beautiful. I miss it so here this time of the year. I've always wanted to preserve lemons, but since our climate does not warrant citrus trees, I would have to buy them and it would not be the same! Enjoy!
