Thanks for the warm welcome. :)

I'm bringing in Washington Navels right now that are off-the-hook good. WN are the anchors of my citrus.

The recent cold spell sent me into a panic so I brought in most of the Page Mandarins. I still have a few continuing to sweeten up - wish they were as easy to peel as Kishu.

Looks like I will be "mixing up" another batch of Meyer Lemon Limoncello this weekend. My last batch tasted like lemony, but somewhat enjoyable, kerosene. Will add a bit more sugar this time...
