    Apparently, they can help the tree grow but aren't much use for anything else!

    And I wish lemons were cheap around here! The fruit is all robust and VERY tasty.
    Such a beautiful, versatile fruit!!!

    I fail to understand what an alcohol soaked MOTH is, but my MOTH happily p155ed all on the lemon tree, but even that couldn't save it

    I love lemons, so versatile. Especially limoncello and lemon chicken yummmmmm

    Nup, the ground is quiet good, the tree was infected however and couldn't be saved. we had to cut it out and burn it to stop the virus affecting other trees. (we actually did get someone out to give us advice)

    I am a fairly good gardener however and the rest of the garden is quiet fruitful.

    We have the most fantastic olive tree which has 1000's of olive.

    Funny storey, just the other day a neighbor asked for a branch to give to a friend he'd annoyed no end. He wanted to clear the air and thought he'd start with an olive branch

    Yum!
    I love the MF lightly sparkling with a hint of lemon....so refreshing!!!

    I used to prefer lemon in my martinis rather then olives.
    I find olives way too bitter and they are SO ugly to look at- they make me physically ill!

    Normal lives remind me of little rodent turds! Grrrr they sure are ugly, even the flesh on the inside is yucky lol They are the type of ingredient that overpowers all the others. They can sometimes be too tough and bitter.

    I looooove Sicillian olives, it's made with lemon rind and zest. Now they are delicious. So expensive though. Normal olives are so cheap and common. The best olives come with lemon and they are so expensive. Up to $43 per kg at my local deli.

    Yuuuuum!!!
    You are right about the common type olives.
    I find them to have a horribly bitter taste and they leave a foul taste in my mouth every time without fail.

    Sometimes I wonder if they aren't always grown in the optimal environment or if they are just bitter, full stop.

    My olives must be good then, the Italian and Greek ladies around this area knock on the door every year to pick them and pickle them - they often bring us back a couple of jars of olives. Ours is the oldest tree in the area. We know it was planted in 1960 and is of good old stock. They are always juicy and plump.
