Did you know that even the leaves of the lemon tree smell like lemons? By the way, the leaves of a garlic plant also smells like garlic. We discovered that since we planted on clove of garlic. But back to our lemons...
|Ms. Adele showed us how we could roll the lemons on the counter to get them to be soft. That was really hard work!|
|When some of the lemons started leaking juice, we tried a bit of the juice. Boy, was it sour!|
|Ms. Adele used her hands to squeeze out the juice from the lemons. There were a LOT of seeds in our lemons!|
|We all got to try some of the fresh lemon|
|Some of us didn't like eating fresh lemon...|
|... while others ...|
|... couldn't get enough of it!|
|We added some cold water to the lemon juice and realized it was still very sour. So we also added some sugar. |
Did you know that sugar also comes from a plant? We get sugar from sugar cane. Plants really give us a lot of things!
|After we drank all of the lemonade, we took the seeds. Some of us would like to try and grow some lemon trees at home|
