This was our first year to harvest oranges here at Sunnyside.
When we purchased Sunnyside, we were so excited that it had established orange trees. We were quite disappointed in the fact that they weren't producing fruit though. Finally, after a good pruning & a thorough spraying with white oil last year & perfectly timed watering by God over summer we were blessed with a wonderful bounty this year!
Little hands reaching, feet standing on tip-toe trying to grasp each golden nugget of goodness. Laughter at finding the hidden fruit , the fun of standing on shoulders to reach the highest spheres ~ all this accompanied the final picking for 2011.
Baskets slowly filled, blessings received, thanks given!
A glass of freshly squeezed orange juice ~ delicious & sweet. Just brimming with so many vitamins you can taste them ~ such a wonderful treat!
Then God said "I give you every seed-bearing plant
on the face of the whole earth and every tree
that has fruit with seed in it.
They will be yours for food"
Blessings my friends,
