3-9-13 Kumquats

In the right hand corner of the backyard, there is a kumquat tree.  It was a beautiful spring Florida day, not too warm, just right.  We were doing various things in the backyard (it needs a LOT of stuff done) - trimming low branches from the oak trees, trimming the little palm tree.  Toward the end of the day I saw Andy picking some kumquats.  He told me there were a ton of them and they tasted great.   I had turned up the bottom of his shirt to make a bowl and had quite a few.  We brought them back inside and each had some.
   You can just pick them right off the tree, eat them whole.  The seeds and skin are all part of the fruit.
   There was a lot of great things in the backyard.
But, I remember the kumquats and am grateful for them.
