We did a little video with California Grown…
We just picked our first bin of organic late navels!
We started the transition to organic on part of our acreage three years ago. It seemed like it would be forever till we were certified. Three years of higher costs of cultivation, yet sales as conventional fruit. But here we are. Certified!
So look for Sunkist organic navels in the stores. They could be ours!
And they look, and taste, amazing! So good, don’t waste them making guac. Seriously. They are better than just guac. :) Can you count how many there are?
Neither can I. I am not a good avocado harvester.
Look at that pink color already! And the juice!
We don’t pick them until we want to eat them. And these are great!
We put so much love into our farming, the fruit shows it. Literally sometimes.
It got a bit cold last night! The icicles look scary, but they are from the water we put on. The water tends to keep the temperature up so the fruit doesn’t freeze. Hopefully!
We hope everyone has a great year filled with joy, happiness, and good health.

This is what happens when a citrus grower has extra fruit, and extra time, and the need for a holiday part cake.
We’ve been busy size picking the largest lemons lately. Seeded and seedless. Did you know though, this early in the year, the lemons are still green! Actaully, they are still green because we haven’t gotten the cold weather we need to turn them yellow. So we pick them green, and the packing house lets them yellow in a temperature controlled room. Cool, huh?
Why yes. Probably the best use of buddha hand citron that we have come up with. Vodka, gin, rum, tequila. It’s all good.
