Since my friend in Louisiana sent me all those lemons, and I’m just about finished putting them up, I was looking for something on the blog this morning and came across this picture from 2009.
If you look closely, you’ll see someone out helping himself to oranges. And, it was a sheriff’s deputy!
The truth is, the neighbor’s burglar alarm had gone off and several deputies had been dispatched. They all knew mom and dad and asked if they could pick some fruit and of course, mom and dad were happy to have someone relieve the trees of some of their load.
What I wouldn’t give to be able to grow citrus here.
