Home-grown yuzu and sun-dried shimeji mushrooms

Happy Thanksgiving!

It's been 1.5 years since we planted this tiny yuzu tree in our yard. This winter, we have the first yield of 4 yuzu from our tree. Yes, just 4. But, considering the size of the tree, I think we did a good job. And, these precious quartet look really gorgeous. Ideal yield of one yuzu is every 100 leaves.

And, I continue to sun-dry mushrooms whenever the sun is out. I'm becoming like a crazy dry mushroom lady. Here's my 2-day sun-dry shimeji mushrooms. After they are exposed under the sun, the bunches open up like chia pet!
