Citrus Colors Merging Into Fall For Foodie Friday

Join in on the great fun over at Designs by Gollum for Foodie Friday

It is beginning to feel like Fall around here and the Citrus Colors work well with this vintage cloth.  I'm beginning to harvest some of this year's citrus crop from the garden. My trees are very young so the crop is not overwhelming us yet. We've just picked the last of the winter/spring crop from 2008 and this year's crop will begin to ripen around Christmas. We have 'Rio Red' Grapefruit, 'Chandler' Pummelo, 'W. Murcott' Mandarin Orange, 'Lisbon' Lemon, and a couple of Key Limes that are not liking our cold temps in this little microclimate.

Grapefruit are almost as big as the baby tree!


Lemons beginning to ripen with our recent cold snap.


  1. Love your photos. The lemons have such a great color.

  2. Fantastic colors! I love citrus and grow some myself here in Arizona.
    Have a wonderful week end!

  3. Beautiful pictures! Your table is so inviting and cozy. I love the color of those bowls in the top picture.

  4. Your photos are really lovely. The clarity and color are wonderful.

  5. Thank you ladies! And the aroma is almost enough reason to grow fresh citrus, just amazing. We had fresh lemon juice in our spinach salad last night, adds just the perfect zing. Yummy!

    Kristen, the bowls in the first image are the new "Baking Bowls" brought out within the last couple of years by Homer Laughlin China. The color shown is Scarlet!

    Have a great day out there in blogland!

  6. I am so jealous. The table setting is beautiful, the fruit so stunning I can almost smell it through the computer. I would love to have citrus that fresh. Yum.


  7. I am so jealous of your fruit trees. Your tables is beautiful:)

  8. I envy your citrus trees! Your table looks amazing -

  9. Thanks everyone! With the cool nights and bright sunny days, we should have grapefruit to eat in another week or so! Yummy!
