Lemon Tree Harvest!

I think most people who move south to Mexico occasionally have a little something special that they miss, food wise, from life north of the border. Me, I really enjoy Greek food, and to me it’s not worth it if it isn't made with fresh lemons.

Well there are no Greek restaurants in Patzcuaro or Morelia, and lemons only show up in the stores once in a blue moon. Maybe once every second blue moon.

The only solution, grow your own! Well, easier said than done. Looking everywhere we ended up finding a couple of eureka lemons ( reportedly ) from Morelia that have never fruited. We also sourced out a Meyers lemon in San Miguel. It was lovingly transported from there to a place of honor in our back yard. That was June of 2008.

Our First Harvest!

Yesterday we had our first harvest. It was not a large harvest, but a tasty one.

Then for dinner, Greek chicken( with lemon of course), rice, roasted spuds and fresh beans, and , fresh home made tzatziki !

It was a dinner almost 2 years in the making, and it was worth the wait.

Actually, I think I am going to have some leftovers for lunch now, who wants to join me?

Patzcuaro House For Sale – Back to square one.

Patzcuaro house sale real estate

Hey, long time no see.! What have I been up to? Well since last October, when we received a deposit on the sale of our home. We have worked through numerous delays and excuses to finally make to the closing in February.

Then, on the day of the closing our buyer has a complete mental meltdown. The details I will not go into at this time, but if you saw it in a movie, you would find it difficult to take seriously.

Oh well, back to square one.

So, stay tuned for our new adventures!
