Day 48: Fresh Mandarins

by Ivan Steenkamp February. 17, 2017 340 views

We are fortunate to have some very good friends. They own a citrus orchard and give us extra fruit and seconds for free sometimes! Today they asked us if we wanted to take some of the old and dry mandarins off of their hands. Of course we said yes! 

After the rain of yesterday, the sun came out and made it very hot and humid. Not much fun to work in! 

We got about 35 kilos of mandarins. What a blessing!
