Lemon Muffins

I have a few fruit trees in pots. One is a lemon tree. A bit over a month ago, I harvested a couple of lemons. Here is the first one:

If life gives you a lemon, make Lemon Muffins!

These were made using the lemon poppy seed muffin recipe from Vegan With a Vengeance. I didn't have any poppy seeds, so I left them out. They were pretty good. M and I are big fans of lemon baked goods, though the guys of the house aren't so keen. More for me!

Caturday on Sunday:

Miss Switch accepting scratches from both Z and J. She was purring like mad and rolling on her side and back to encourage tummy scratches.


  1. Yum! We all love lemon baked goods (sadly the kids didn't like the poppy seeds, don't know why I didn't think to leave them out!). I know what I'm making soon!

    I'm super jealous of your lemon. We have an orange tree and a mandarin tree, both give loads of fruit but are always infested by big black smelly bugs :( I don't want to spray chemicals and have yet to figure out how to get rid of them (one website suggested vacuuming them off the tree, ew!).

    Love Miss Switch! She's adorable!!!

  2. Oh I'm disappointed to hear that you have lemons, only because we have a lemon tree (in pot) that is completely bare of fruit. :/ It hasn't had flowers or buds or anything! I guess I need to give it some TLC.

    I did keep finding these odd black and white striped caterpillars with red antenni on mine, sitting on the leaf but I can't see any damage they've done. I don't know what to do so I just pluck them whole leaf off and throw it into the grass.

    Amy I just googled 'black bugs on citrus' and found some info here: it only advises different ways to kill them, though one says you can pick them off, but another says the stink spray is poisonous and burns, so whatever you do be careful!

  3. Ooh, a lemon tree, what a great garden resident. As soon as we have a bigger space in which to grow things I'm getting citrus trees.

  4. Lemony baked goods are always delicious!
