While on a quick trip to south Florida, I stopped to visit with a local citrus farmer, Jerry, and his orange-loving chocolate lab Sophie. It was my first time picking Honeybells and tangerines from the tip top of the trees, carefully making sure to not puncture the skin (we only lost one, and it wasn’t really lost, the juice went right into my mouth 🙂 yum! We ended up with five giant grocery sized bags of the sweetest, juiciest citrus there is! I have my vitamin C for the next month, fresh, local, all-natural, and pesticide-free. Many thanks to the dedicated farmers and the skills and knowledge they lend to curious upcoming generations like me.
