There is probably a couple crates we gotta pick yet before the freeze. HARD to believe one tree can produce this many oranges.

My late mother-in-law lived in Northern Cal and used to send me a box of oranges for Christmas. After she died, I missed them so much I found a nearby company that would ship them to me in Colorado. When we moved to the mountains, having a box of oranges left by UPS in the snow for a half a day didn't work so well.
