The Fruit Harvest

What a treat it has been to be able to go out in the backyard and select a big ruby red grapefruit or sweet oranges to make fresh orange juice every day. Our grapefruit tree is loaded still. We had a big harvest today and were able to send off boxes to our children.

The picking

The grapefruit branches are still loaded.

These are the juice oranges that are so sweet. They make the best orange juice ever.
I don't think I will ever be able to go back to drinking the frozen stuff. We are now waiting for the orange blossoms to pop. It is the most wonderful smell. It smells so good I could drink it!
