picking the morning Fruit & collecting the eggs

Well today is a very cold day yesterday was the start of winter here in Australia, So to warm up this morning I thought I would do some cooking, but first I need to feed the chickens and collect the eggs, while collecting the eggs I noticed my mandarins where ready for picking this is the first crop as the tree is only a couple of years old, they are very large not to many on the tree this year I have picked about 20 and there is about another 10 that I will pick in a couple of days.

I also picked some more oranges so after coming inside I put the basket on the bench and noticed how lovely they looking sitting in the basket and how wonderful it is to grow and pick our own fruit.  So I am going to pop off now and do some more baking for the week.

Have a beautiful Tuesday Lisa

these are the blueberry muffins I made the other day.
