Look What Santa Claus Picked
Santa Claus, Joulupukki, (Finnish) picked the last of our Cubanelle peppers and checked our citrus trees for ripeness yesterday. My husband, Gary, is Finnish and I talked him into doing the picking. We now have lots of ripe navel oranges, blood oranges, and clementines - a whole grocery bag of each. We didn't get any snow last night, but it got down to 28 F, so I'm glad Gary picked the fruit.
I planted the citrus trees four years ago when they were a foot tall. Now they are five feet tall and providing us with lots of fruit. I can't believe how much fruit was on our trees and boy is it good! If you are close by, please stop by for a taste of our organically grown citrus, we've got plenty to share.
Have a Merry Christmas and a fruitful New Year!
