Giant Lemon

I like lemons. I used to eat them as a child. Some might say that explains my tart disposition. Earlier this year, I found this monstrosity. I had to have it. Someone grew this in their backyard. They brought it to my job as a way of getting rid of it. Fortunately I was there to seize this opportunity. I mean look at it. I'm sure it's the largest lemon I've ever seen.

I cut it open and (as predicted) it was mostly pith. Still, the part that wasn't was delicious. I spaced this lemon over several cups of tea and had no complaints. I just wanted to share.
