Merry Christmas Mandarin

This year we planted quite a few trees.  Not shade trees.  Not pretty-to-look-at trees.  Fruit trees.  Trees that really earn their keep.  Stone fruit, apple, pear, and citrus.  I think citrus is my favorite.  Citrus ripens around Christmas time here and is delicious when it’s juicy and cold.  Of course, I’ll switch gears in the summer stating that the stone fruit is my favorite.  I’m fickle that way.

Today, I picked the 1st Satsuma Mandarin.

Oh that looks so yummy :) Ours don't seem quite ripe yet and there's only a couple on our baby tree...but I can hardly wait!
