Mission Orange Harvest completed!

Well we weighed in at 1,008 kilos – happy with that. Last night definitely required a hot water bottle on the lower back to ease the pain!

Another week and I’m not sure we would’ve been able to take them in …

Looking at this photo does give us a massive sense of achievement – when we moved in we had to give the trees a hard prune as they hadn’t been done for a long time, so we’re convinced we wouldn’t get that many oranges this year. We’re pruning again now that the harvest is finished – the trees are already in flower and full of our busy little friends pollinating!

    1. Thanks! We have left half a tree for ourselves and have fresh orange every morning! From January to the summer – nothing tastes quite like it when they’re straight off the tree!
