We have a tasty little treat for you tonight: The Kumquats are ready! I will make a special chutney for Christmas. The light freeze did not hurt the Loquat blooms so they are still in bloom and bees are pollinating to make the fruit. What are Kumquats and Loquats? Below I have shared info from Wikipedia so you will be "in the know"! These fruits are not as popular in the States as in other parts of the world. I have trees of both growing in the yard and they are a great addition to any garden. More cold arrived today. For a short time, the morning cloud cover was frozen and split to reveal the blue sky and bright sunshine! I caught a little bit of Sunshine for your day before th cloud cover closed up. Enjoy!
