I don't think anything you can buy in a store tastes as good as the stuff you grow yourself.  They put so much chemicals on things these days.  I wash any fruit that I buy because I don't know what it may have been sprayed with. I even wash the bananas because if there's any chemical stuff on the outside, it's still there when you peel the fruit.

I used to grow a pretty large garden with tomatoes, squash, peas, green beans and such but it is actually pretty expensive by time you buy some decent soil, then the seeds or seedlings and whatever else is needed.  I ended up giving away far more than I ate so I stopped gardening. :xmas61:

Nom nom - it looks so good, ML

I think the taste is very different from our imported lemons, oranges etc....? I would love to eat fresh grapefruits

The hard part is waiting for the fruit to become edible!!  It looks pretty and orange but up close, it still has a lot of green on it. I picked one of each today to test them out.  They are nice and sweet but will be even sweeter when fully ripe.  That will be at least another month.

my oranges are my favorite because they don't have seeds and are so sweet!  In all of the past years, each orange has weighted at least one pound!  The biggest one was 1.5 pounds.  They are much smaller this year due to the time of year that I trimmed the trees.  It needs to be done right after the last fruit is removed but it's usually raining at that time of year.

I will be thinking of all of you while I'm eating it.   :girl1:

To quote (more or less)  from a  nursery rhyme....MaryLou, MaryLou, how does your garden grow?... :lol02:

Quite nice indeed from the looks of these fruit trees!!  You definitely have a green thumb.  They are fantastic.

You are lucky to have great citrus trees with all that fruit.  I have never had any luck with citrus trees.
