Surrounded by Citrus
One of the great things about downtown San Jose is the abundance of citrus trees. They are everywhere and at this time of year they are dripping with fruit. I am lucky to have a view of this gorgeous orange tree out my window. Anywhere you walk you'll see citrus trees of every variety and most people are more than happy to share their crop with you. Just knock on the door and ask (bring your own bag). My oranges make delicious juice. The longer you leave them on the tree the sweeter the juice. Look around, in these difficult economic times let's not let this abundance go to waste!
