I’m sure very gardener has things in the garden that they particularly look forward to, produce only a few of or are difficult to grow so that the harvesting of those things becomes a very special event. I have a few things that fall into this category, the readiness of my one butternut pumpkin (not perfect looking, but I’m hoping it tastes amazing) and even more so my first two limes. I’ve been trying to grow citrus for years, my first lemon tree failed to produce a single lemon despite countless attempts to make it happier. In the end I cut my losses and pulled it out, it never really recovered from the citrus wasp thingy. I now have a lemon/lime grafted dwarf tree in a bit pot, it has already given me these two precious limes, so it’s already ahead of the game, and is now beginning to produce flowers. The lime side seems much more productive so far.
Now what I need to do is to decide on how to use these two rare harvests. What would you do with them? I want something that really highlights the harvests, so a great pumpkin dish and a great lime dish/dessert is what I’m after. Suggestions? I’m very tempted by City Hippy Farmgirl’s Lime and Ricotta Tart.
