I found a dessert recipe that looked really good and thought I would make it for "ladies night". The recipe called for Limoncello. I had never heard of Limoncello, looked it up, thought it would be deliciously-sweet and lemony-tart so bought a big bottle for my recipe that would use 1/4 cup.
"That's way too much Limoncello." He said, "What will you do with the rest?"
"Don't you worry" I said "I'll use it in drinks and cooking and it'll be fine. It'll be gone before you know it."
This is what I have left after four years.
"What will you do with a fig tree?" He said, "You don't like figs"
"I might". I said. "They might taste better from the tree than they do from the store."
"What will you do with the tree when it's too big to bring in the house for the winter?" He said
I don't think that's a worry yet, here is my fig tree - and yes, that's the actual height of 5".
It might be a while before he gets to say "See, I told you you wouldn't like figs"
