Photo: Orange blossom time here in Southern California
It is orange blossom time here in Southern California and the air is heavy with their scent whenever you walk outside. It looks promising for another bumper crop this year of backyard fruit. We have to get ours from our neighbors, but there are usually many to go around. We typically end up with grocery bag full allotments left randomly on our front porch. Can’t really complain about that, though. (SMILE)
I only wish we could make better use of our local harvest. So much goes to waste. There are several groups that try to capture this bounty for the less fortunate including Fallen Fruit and AmpleHarvest.org.
