Fall's Harvest

A gateway into what is next! and a serious case of strange fruit.

My neighbor doesn't like to pick the lemons off his massive lemon trees... he allows them to morph into bedeviled unharvested fruit baking in the California sun and like any unharvested fruit left on the vine past its prime they mutate and morph into something that is positively crazy. After staring at them for many months covetously the occasion presented itself for me to pick some of the lemons when for a dinner party we were short of lemons for a BBQ of some freshly purchased fish....

Up close and personal, many of the lemons were unusable having gone bad, others looked goofy but had good juice, and still others defied description, taking on personalities all their own. One Lemon in particular stood out, it looked like a great lemon brain... it was out of its mind... Showing it to one of my friends saying "look at this crazy lemon" laughing at the sheer absurdity of the fruit. Without a beat he turned to me and said "that should be the name of your new company, a brand like no other. Crazy Lemon. I looked at the lemon, I looked at him, I took a photo of the lemon and threw it into photoshop...  Here's the results...

Let me know your thoughts and what you are harvesting this fall....  info@alwaysalice.com

Belle Amour!!
