Its that time of the year in the Costa Blanca and Costa Calida, Spain. The fruit pickers are out in force, first it was the pomogrants, now it’s the turn of the lemons and in a few weeeeks the oranges will be ready to be picked.

When you live on the Costa Blanca or Costa Calida ( Murcia ) you see all the fruits being picked. Lemons are picked twice a year and oranges, tangerines are usualy picked from early November through till February.

There is nothing as refreshing as making your own fresh orange juice from freshly picked oranges with no preservatives. Yes it’s tasty and frothy and the smell is fantastic and the house is filled with fresh orange smell..
Freshly picked lemons squeezed over salads and fish makes them even tastier, and if you can pick your own all the better. Our garden is abundent with all sorts of fruit. Oranges, lemons, tangerines, pink grapefruit, grapes, olives and figs.  We are surrounded by pomegrants but not growing in our garden. The area is 4,500 square meters and also has a selection of herb and flowers which are flowering all the year round.
