For the first time in quite a while, our citrus trees are producing good fruit. The Valencia Orange tree is still too early in the cycle but the tangerines will be ready in a week or so, I don't think it will be too much longer than that. The lemons are ready to go right now. The trees have been semi dormant for a few years but for the most part they have given us good quality fruit.
When I was a kid growing up in Pico Rivera, California, we had two lemon trees, one in the front yard and one in the back. Whenever one of us had a stomach ache, or felt a cold coming on,either my mother or father, would make us some hot tea made from the lemon leaves. It seemed to do the trick, and it tasted good too.
