Oranges, Picked!

Goodbye 2010 - You've been good to me, with a house, a fiance and a new take on doing what makes you happy.

Nearly 9 months ago we moved into 765 and planted our orange tree at the engagement party. We've watched little green oranges pop up, then fall off, and crossed our fingers as three continued to grow (remember?). In the end two survived and we finally go to pick them. Travis and I rang in the new year with some Blue Moon and oranges. They were delicious! We continued the rest of our New Years Eve evening with a progressive party between Spanish Town and Beauregard Town, and a trolly shuttling us boozers across downtown. Can't beat that for a local NYE. Cheers to a new year and hopefully a few more oranges!

Very nice! My parents and planted a blood orange tree when they bought our house in '01. It took years for it to make oranges, but now it supplies us with about four 5 gallon buckets worth every year! They are so so good!
