This is why we love late Winter/early Spring in southern California—–> Blood Oranges ! It’s blood orange recipe season and our trees dropping their fruit is our signal that it’s time to eat or drink those precious blood oranges or else lose the precious stash to the squirrels. Oh, those darn squirrels love our citrus and we’ll be damned if they get a hold of all those blood oranges before we do. It’s time to drink!
We’ve succomb to the fact that our garden will never have enough fruit trees. Three years ago when we finished much of the main plantings, we thought we were finished with any more new additions of trees, but every time we visit a nursery, we’re overwhelmed with new gardening ideas. Now, we never seem to be able to leave the nursery empty handed. The truck always seems to have a new garden addition waiting in the back of the bed. It’s always so exciting to bring home a new fruit tree. It’s like bringing home a new puppy!
