When we bought our piece of land 11 years ago it was just an acre of land with a few trees and really, really tall grass. The first job on the very long list was to plant an orchard. I spent my birthday choosing 18 fruit trees that we had decided we could fit in, digging holes, fertilising, mulching and watering....it was the best birthday ever....and I am so grateful now....we have mangoes, bananas, starfruits, mullberries and all the citrus.
Most mornings at this time of the year we have a mix of freshly squeezed orange, mandarin and tangelo juice....it really is amazing...it feels so good and soooo healthy.
My favourite juicer is this old citrus juicer that I picked up from an op shop about 15 years ago for $10 which seemed liked heaps back then...I used to think it wouldn't last that long and was always really careful when I used it but now realise it will probably out live me....and a bonus...no electricity needed.....just muscles.
How do you start your day?
Love to hear from you ♥ Jo
