citrus

Hey Carol, do you remember planting some wee citrus trees last time you visited?
 The mandarin is bowed over with fruit. We don't know exactly when to pick so we are just gathering the daily wind falls, and they are excellent and all two people can eat any way.
 I am looking up at the lemon. I don't know why it is twice the size of the others. It is covered in fruit too.
Anticipation as the first naval orange ripens! It is the runt of the three, but we will get a half dozen ripe fruit this year. It doesn't seem a long time ago these went in the ground. Things just grow so quickly!
