The Lions Club citrus arrives

Lions Club Citrus

Thank you Lions -- and thank you, Texas! (It's a lousy cell phone picture -- believe me, the fruit looks better in person, and tastes just great.)

They look delicious. I love freshly squeezed orange juice and sweet oranges.

I've just read your article (sorry, catching up after a busy week), and I wish we still had seasonal fruit because it's nice to each items when they should be eaten (and are locally grown where possible!). Sometimes though I've noticed the oranges have been really disappointing and dry here lately. Maybe it's now they store them getting them to the UK?

Enjoy your fruit! :)

Could be, I don't know too much about storage procedures. Ours can be somewhat dry and bland toward the end of winter, too. But for now -- perfect. :-)

Is the Ft Wayne group doing it again today? I dun feel like driving "home" to Albion and really wanted to get some oranges when I saw the sign yesterday on my way to work. :(

I really don't know who else is doing it, but keep your eyes peeled -- I'll bet they'll have some out along the way, too.

Are those oranges or grapefruit? I quite like the former, but don't care at all for the latter.

The top ones are oranges, and the bottom ones grapefruit. I love both, but grapefruit is certainly an acquired taste -- and too sour, depending on where they come from and what point in the season it is.

Oh,oh, I finally have the right icon for a post. :-)

Seriously, there's nothing more fun than getting fresh food in the mail. When Crewman's dad was alive we sent him a box of local fruit every year at Thanksgiving.

Perfect icon! We used to make my parents a fruit basket for Christmas every year. Maybe it's time to start doing that again ...
