I made marmalade. I had to prune the lemon tree before we built up the gardens (more on that later) and I couldn’t bear to waste the two buckets of lemons one branches bore. It turns out, two buckets of lemons (well, a bucket and a half by the time I got around to it) is over 5 kilograms. Further, that’s more lemons than our biggest pot can hold, even uncomfortably.

Suffice to say, there were a few hitches. But there is now marmalade! And it’s tasty, tart with a dry, bitter finish just as I like it.
