We are planting a variety of Criollo Aribica coffee to add a little something to the flavor to our existing coffee flavor profile. We are also chopping down some of the oldest orange trees that are starting to show some signs of disease. Apparently, some of these trees are 40 years old, almost as old as I am.
We are also planting passion fruit on some of the larger citrus. Passion fruits grow well here and we are starting a small collection of different varieties.
Lastly, I was so impressed by my giant lemon tree, inherited from the previous owner of the farm, that we are putting in a couple more for our own kitchen. They produce fragrant lemons the size of grapefruit that are beyond delicious inside a roast chicken.
So, although it is a little wet in the afternoons and humidity is mostly above the 70% mold growing benchmark. This is one of my favorate times of year.
