I am very sorry, good neighbors of my mother-in-law, for "accidentally" taking home 2 (TWO!) boxes full of citrus from your fine trees. It is a problem. I saw trees literally dripping and dropping lemons, grapefruits, and tangerines onto alleys and sidewalks. I could not walk by without picking one up, then another, and then...look, another lemon on the ground. Is that a meyer lemon? A 2 pound grapefruit just sitting here!?? My pockets would be weighed down after each of my daily walks. It was an accident, really.
I would have asked permission, I swear. But, I never saw anyone outside due to the weather. It was rainy for an Arizonian, but not me. I am waterproof due to being a native Oregonian.
You can see my problem. I love fruit trees and I have never, ever seen so much citrus in one place. Within a mile of my MIL's house there were at least 20 different kinds of citrus. I was in heaven.
So, um, sorry.
On the plus side, lots of citrus recipes are coming up!
