Citrus Celebration

One of the reasons I love my hometown is the Inland Orange Conservancy: an organization dedicated to saving the old local groves that grow fantastic oranges that aren’t pretty enough for SunKist to buy. When you become a member, you receive 10 pounds of oranges every week during the season, and if you don’t eat them,they’re donated to local food banks. Every spring they have an event in an old grove that lets you taste all these amazing citrus varieties and just revel in the orange-blossom-ness of our town. When we went yesterday, a reporter caught a good picture of my older son Liam trying what looks like a blood orange – and his picture made the story! Pretty cool!
