May 2011 MKG Harvest

The first Oro Blanco grapefruit!

It has been one wacky "spring."  Out here in California we've had more rain than any of us can remember- it rained all weekend even!  That might not be a big deal in some places (and in general we need it out here) but it is strange and unusual in this Mediterranean climate to get rain much after the first few days of May.  It's usually dry as a bone from mid-May into September.  Seriously.  Needless to say, my harvesting is way behind schedule.

The May 2011 MKG Harvest consisted of:

   - a bunch of Meyer lemons
   - several oranges
   - the first Oro Blanco grapefruit
   - 4 stalks green garlic
   - a big bowl of chard

Hmmmm, that list looks a little sparse.  Oh well, the weather can't be spectacular all the time.  I don't expect too much out of June, but I've got big hopes for July!  I can't be too bummed, though - my first green garlic was quite scrumptious.  And the verdict on the Oro Blanco?  Delicious!  It didn't need any sugar, it was just the right sweetness naturally, and the flavor was amazing.  I can't wait for more to ripen!
