Oh, I suspect the tree isn't there anymore. I moved from that place in 1989. The tree was actually growing in the driveway in front of the old garage (it had side hinges). My little house was set way back against the fence.

The last time I looked at Google Earth, the little house had been torn down, the Chinese Elm tree in front of it had been taken out (I loved that tree), all the bushes surrounding the front yard inside the fence had been torn out (so had the fence) and a larger, more modern house had been placed in the middle of the lot.

If I hadn't known where I used to live, I wouldn't recognize it if someone put in there today.

Hadn't heard about a shortage, but that explains why the local grocery only had organic lemons last week. I really needed it and paid $1.69 for one lemon.

we buy them at Aldi's for about $2.99 a bag. I think there are between 7 and 9 in a bag. At least that was a couple of weeks ago. We are going back Sunday after church. I will be anxious to see how much they are.

The local farmer's market had NONE today. They are absolutely out of season locally--which means the greater Southern California area, as far as Fresno. I bought great oranges and grapefruit, but there were no lemons.

Trader Joe's has them for $0.49, but they must be imported from somewhere else.

Sad but true. I LOVE a big, juicy lemon with a lot of seeds.....eat them down whole, minus the peel.

Limes are great also.....if you can find good ones.

I think we all prefer the nice, big ones, but if you want fresh lemons and you can't get exactly what you want you take what you can get. The ones we get, in the bag at Alidi's are actually pretty tasty and a nice size. Sometimes they do not have as much juice as we would like. I have to admit, I do not eat them whole. I use them in cooking. Yes, we too love limes. In fact in some things we prefer limes. They are the one I do have trouble getting good ones.
