Weekend accomplishments

Not much to report. Squeezed and froze about 3 gallons of tangelo juice--there are still many more to pick and process--and several ice cube trays of lemon and lime juice. Kind of tedious freezing juice in ice cube trays even if one has six or seven trays to work with. Two Meyer lemons, for example, will produce enough juice to fill a tray. So when you have a bumper crop, as we seem to have this year, one doesn't make much of a dent in it with ice cube trays--and for lemon and lime juice, almost any other unit of measure it too large to have much utility.

Too bad you guys live so far away. You could drop by and pick all you wanted. Then, again, if you lived that close, you'd probably have your own citrus trees and have surpluses of your own to deal with.
