Thank you for the information about the grapefruits. It’s interesting to read about fruits and flowers that we can’t grow here in our cold climate. It is snowing here this morning. We are getting our share of the nor’easter that hit the eastern US. I think today will be a baking/sewing day for me.
Yesterday I picked catmint to dry and also lavender. I have been sewing little cat toys stuffed with catmint to sell at the hospice craft/bake sale. And I will make little lavender pouches which can be tucked under bed pillows. Supposedly, lavender helps to ensure a good sleep.
I have not done the whole tour of Dale’s Garden yet but will watch the rest today. Just two days ago I was thinking that I would like to see a big photo of the garden. So thank you for the garden tour.

Thanks for all the information on the grapefruit. I had no idea about these
and wonderful that you picked them at the right time so you can enjoy them.
Do you harvest many of them?
Great pictures too.

Wow, what a wonderful citrus season you’ve had this year. Makes me jealous.
It’s dark and wet, wet, wet in the NW.

VERY cool! I dedicate this to my sisters and myself, who grew up in SoCal with a dwarf grapefruit tree in the backyard that bore the sourest grapefruits on the planet. Our mother finally quit trying to get us to eat them when she started having to buy twice as much sugar. Alas! If only she’d known about pummelos–or Oro Blanco!

The pictures of the grapefruit and the spoon reminds me of my mother – nobody cut a grapefruit the way she did.

red grapefruit i like – pummelos are kind of weird, this cross could indeed be the best of both.
i have not tried one, i will look for them at the farmers market.

Yummm!!!! One of my fav grapefruits, up there with Melogold and Cocktail. We are blessed to live in a part of the country that can grow all 3 of these to perfection. You’re very fortunate to have such sweet fruit considering we had such a cool summer. I’m on my way, in fact, to pick up an Oro Blanco at Clausen’s today to add to my little grapefruit “orchard”!!
