Mmm mandarins

We're right in the middle of winter and all our delicious citrus trees are bearing fruit. We have had so many limes that we sent Mr W around to place a bag on all the neighbours doorsteps. Our lemons are going gang busters too. I've squeezed a load of them and placed the juice in the freezer to use later. The orange and kumquat trees aren't doing much this year... they are both in pots and suffered badly with our long, dry summer.

The mandarin tree is a big success this year. I can't remember ever eating fruit off this tree before, but this year they are just delicious... and there are lots of them.
