If you happen to go to the casino in Imokolee, roll down the windows on Rt. 82 when you go by the orchards. It really smells great.

Yep and the only thing better than the smell is the taste of fresh squeezed OJ in the morning.

Today I had fresh squeezed orange juice from my little Valencia orange tree. Awesome.

When I went to the Rodeo on Friday, we had a light rain that day, and the smell of the blossoms coming from the orange groves was phenomenal!

Smile ORANGE Blossoms and......JUICE!

OMG........did your orange juice have the PULP too? LOVE that with the fresh juice. My aunt (from PC)always squeezed her own fresh orange juice, and it was soooo sweet and perfect!

Yep, I don't have a great juicer, but one that is electric and spins and reverses - it works great, and it lets a tiny bit up plup through - it rocks!!

This year my tree will be twice as big, and probably produce a lot more juice!!

Yummy.....AND.....not only does it taste and SMELL good, but.....look at all the $$ you're saving, too! We definitely want to plant orange, lime and lemon trees on our property when the time comes.

We have a pink grapefruit tree in our back yard. I never was one for grapefruit until I tried one of these. They are so sweet you don't really need sugar. And they are full of juice. We ate them all winter long.

I love grapefruit too!

Its nice being able to do that once in a while. I like looking out in the morning and seeing the great colors of the green in the tree and the fruit, not to mention all the other flowering plants we have down here!!

Once our trees get a little bigger, I expect we can pick some fruit every day, and still have surplus.

You folks are making me green with envy. Here I am in the depths of NH, nurturing Meyer lemons, sweet lemon and orchids. I am so very envious of you all.
However, my lemon tree is in blossom so I can enjoy that, and pretend I'm down there with you enjoying your spring. My orchids are blooming and I just finished up the lemons from the tree in a nice chiffon cake. Good little tree. A tough little thing and a good producer. Enjoy your orange perfume. And how are the citrus doing? I feared that by the time I got down there again every citrus in creation would have succumbed to something gosh-awful.

I love grapefruit too! Well, when it has vodka in it.
We have one lonely lime tree on our lot. When we down in January, it had one lonely lime on it. I brought it home and put it on my windowsill. I still like looking at it, even though it's kinda shriveled and brown now....
