A Stormy Harvest

DSC_0378With wind blowing ferociously outside, I decided it would be a good time to harvest my Satsuma tree. This tree is only two years old and is really tiny but was loaded with fruit. Looking outside this morning with the impending big storm, I feared that this little tree wasn’t going to make it through the storm with the heavy weight of the fruit. So I donned my rain boots and jacket for a harvest. It is a pretty magnificent haul from such a small tree. 21 Satsumas for eating, almost 16 pounds! I lost 3 more to slugs since the tree was weighed down to the ground and the fruit was touching the soil.  It is nice that even on a day like today I am able to harvest something from my garden. We probably wont go out for the rest of the day so we will hunker down with a fire, s’mores, hot drinks and a puzzle. DSC_0375
