The severe drought we're in has adversely affected the harvests all spring. We should have received over 14 inches of rain by the end of May, but we've only had six inches.
Here's what is still producing:
Elderberries are doing well, and there is fruit to pick every day. In fact, I've been giving them away!
The White Sapote harvest season is just getting started, but the tree is loaded with fruit. I may be making White Sapote pie again this year!
This is a very ripe Persian Lime! Their season is also just getting started, and I'll be picking fresh limes over the next several months.
Valencia oranges are a late-season variety, and they are the last to be picked. They are considered the best juicing orange, but they're delicious eaten out of hand too!
In addition to the tree fruits, I've also been picking a few tomatoes here and there as they ripen. Unfortunately, our dry weather has been accompanied by high temperatures which inhibit tomato pollination. June is supposed to be our rainiest month of the year, so my fingers are crossed that the downpours will begin any day now!
