Winter's Tangy Harvest
Late fall...winter starts next week...and in the middle of a big drought, not a lot to do in the garden but we can find something.
December in Southern California is citrus season and our three trees are producing!
The cara cara navel orange tree (at the top of this post) has put out the most fruit it's ever given us.
Our Meyer lemon is not far behind.
We harvest just enough to last us for a week or so and let the rest of the fruit stay on the tree til we're ready for more.
Along with the oranges and lemons, I also find a few rogue Anaheim chiles that will go into tomorrow's eggs.
These tart but sweet cara caras are just the ticket for a nice, healthy shot of vitamin C on the side of this sandwich.
