Change of Season

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that Thursday will be the beginning of Fall here. It is predicted to be 98 F that day. Not time for hot cider here, maybe some pumpkin ale. Trader Joes has lots of pumpkin stuff. I do feel a shift. The breeze here seems a little cooler. The days will be getting shorter, and it feels like things are slowing down. Our citrus trees look healthier, with sun-burned leaves gone now. The grapefruit tree is full of green fruit. The fruit looks a bit small, like large oranges. I read this could be due to the summer heat. We will see if the fruit grows more by the time it is ripe this winter.

    Hi Deb.
    Yep – Summer has hit the wall here too.
    The first wind and rain have come and hopefully not fully gone,
    I won’t miss the 90 – 115 degrees that we saw this year and we desperately need all the rain we can get.
    But Grapefruit – ug – not so much. Way too sour for my taste.
    Enjoy your fall – I think we all need a break from summer.

      Well, it’s ruby grapefruit, which is sweeter. Good thing my husband and I like grapefruit, especially my husband. We do get a lot of fruit from this tree and I have to give some away. Hope we all get some more cool and more rain.
