And some horticultural genius decided we needed not 1 but 2 orange trees in our back yard! Let me mention, for anyone out there who might just be working on a landscape design, never plant more than 1 orange tree! Ever! No family can eat 2 trees worth of oranges! Even if they give away as many as they can! Even if they stick baskets of oranges on the sidewalk in front of their house with a sign that says "free." Even if they invite all their friends to come pick as many as they want.
So my 3 boys and I set out to harvest another laundry basket full.
The biggest boy was lead picker.
One can never have too much slam dunking practice, right?
Orange wedges in lunch boxes.
Oranges for dessert.
Fresh orange juice.
