Fruit & A Nut

There were a lot more oranges on this tree until Martha started picking them left and right. Pick pick pick. It will blossom again in March, and each year we're getting a larger yield.

Imagine, outside the right border of the picture, our baby lemon tree, because that's where it is in real time. We've had several freezes this winter, so the lemon is struggling a bit. But Martha has a yellow thumb, so it'll come back this summer when we get our 115° days.

As for me, Martha bought me a juice squeezer machine, so I've been drinking my oranges. You will all be happy to know that I am 100 percent scurvy-free.
