Our fruit is tasty and ready to be picked. We cannot leave it on the trees, or we could lose it on these frosty mornings. I am not sure if they were able to pick all the mandarins, but I am very happy to see this picture. Everyone must taste while they pick from the tree they are working on. The crew cannot harvest mandarins just because the color looks right. They have to taste good, too. So here I am bed bound at UCSF Medical Center. José and Ashlee have cameras and are taking pictures of the farm all week. Ashlee selects the best and posts them to our Picasa web album. This allows me to see what is going on without having to bug José all the time. They know what they are doing, but there will be mistakes. I make plenty of them every year myself. It is joy to see how the crew has risen to the task.
