People in California tend to take fruit for granted & we really shouldn’t. Eatable fruit grows everywhere–mostly in our own backyards. There are surely thousands of orange, grapefruit & lemon trees right here in Sacramento.
Please, If you own a fruit tree, don’t let the fruit hang there and rot; box it up and donate it to a shelter or nearby school. Share them with your neighbors. Put a big box of oranges on your sidewalk with a sign: FREE Oranges. Merry Christmas! Bag up lemons, pass them around at the office. Everyone uses lemons in tea, juice, on pasta, on salads, in lemon tarts!
The point is to share and not waste. We are blessed to have so much fruit. Let’s spread it around.
Thank you, d. xo
