At least part of Willow Lakes RV Park at one time was an orange grove. Back in some of the undeveloped areas, there still are orange trees. We availed ourselves of these oranges when we were here three years ago and we could hardly wait until they ripened up this year. They weren’t quite ready up to the time of our departure to the North, but when we got back it seemed they had pretty well ripened. The trees no longer are tended so they don’t produce huge quantities of uniform oranges like in the commercial groves, but they still are sweet and very juicy, just a little hard to get to with all the “jungle” that has grown up around them. Shown to the right is our first batch of the season, and below is our “super duper juicer” we found via Craigslist and finally the finished product. We gave the small container of juice to one of our neighbors as a partial payment toward the future use of their pole-mounted orange picker. We won’t be drinking juice from frozen concentrate – at least this Winter – just fresh squeezed from FREE oranges. Ahhhhhhhhh.
