So I have some not-ripe oranges. I don't know if they'll ripen in the basket. I don't know if they're early or late. Our tree is covered with blossoms as well as fruit. Is that how it's supposed to be? Seems like blossoms come first, then fruit. But this tree is out of whack, or at least in some other whack than that.
The clementine did not give fruit this past winter. However, right now it's absolutely snowy with blossoms, much earlier in the year than usual. Or later, depending what whack you're viewing from.
The bees don't care. They're gallivanting back and forth from one tree to the other, making sure our clementines have plenty of seeds and our sour oranges will one day be sweet.
