We finally got around to checking on the orange tree today, tastes like this bad boys are finally ready! Did you know that oranges do not ripen after they are picked? They only ripen on the tree.
Here’s how much I ended up with…
One of the perks of buying this house were the fully grown citrus trees. We also have a lemon tree…however it is past it’s season. I picked the last few lemons today.
Hubs was playing ball with klairesy while I picked oranges.
She’s kind of obsessed with tennis balls. Here she is trying to get one that fell into the pool.
She eventually jumped in.
She’s actually pretty darn obedient.
Now I need to go look up some recipes for oranges…
Do you know of any amazing recipes that include fresh oranges??
Otherwise, I fear, it will result in nothing but screwdrivers….
