Our first (and only) glass of home-made orange juice

Our first three oranges!

If it’s one thing that fruit trees teach you, it’s patience. While our lime tree has been fruiting strongly for 18 months now, the two orange trees have been taking their time.

Still, we were finally blessed with our first oranges this winter. Unfortunately there were only five in total. Yes, five.

Three went into a glass of fresh-squeezed juice, which had a nice edge to it (not like the super-sweet and somewhat bland juice that you get in the supermarket).

The last two went into the steamed marmalade pudding that was part of our ploughman’s lunch last weekend.

Onwards to greater crops! 🙂
