Freeze on it's way -- bye-bye citrus??




The citrus in my backyard may be here today, but gone tomorrow. We call it our "organic" crop... and that is because it is totally forgotten... year 'round. Occasionally we'll remember we have it and my husband will bring in a few pieces of fruit to snack on. I'm just not a big citrus eater... unless it's the tangerines. I just do hate to see this fruit threatened by this probable freeze. We'll see....

Those oranges look delicious...they are so large and yummy looking. I'm thinking a big glass of frosty orange juice right now with lots of pulp. Keep your head down tonight and snuggle under the cover....maybe it won't freeze everything.

The oranges look just wonderful...I sure hope they didn't freeze. The news reported a lot of citrus fruit had been damaged by freezing temperatures in FL. They also reported we would see a cost increase on citrus fruit in about three weeks...great!

The crazy Harrison family is having the same dilemma.
John left the ones at the top of the tree that we couldn't reach.

We just gave up!
