Citrus Season

When we did our landscaping, we picked out two orange trees for our front yard. It took almost two seasons for them to really start producing fruit, but now that they are rolling, we’ve got oranges a pleanty! Arizona Sweet Navel and Valencia – I fertilize both within an inch of their lives so that there is lots of large, sweet fruit. This year I had my helper who picked up the oranges as I dropped them out of the tree.

 

 

 

Sadly, I didn’t get a shot of her putting the oranges into her shopping cart to wheel them inside..

 

And if you thought my helper was cute, you should see what Kristin is doing over at One Pretty Place. It’s ridiculous how creative she is!!

    So jealous of your climate! Can’t grow citrus outdoors here in Virginia, but I’m thinking seriously of inquiring a lime tree for my sunny southern window… Enjoy your oranges!

      I felt your pain when we lived in MD! I’ve heard limes are really tough – but Meyer Lemons are little trees and do well in pots. The fruit is a little orange-y so it’s a little sweeter. Good luck with your growing and thanks for reading!
