One of my neighbors, whom we met because she walks by our house almost daily, saw my husband at the Farmers Market last year buying kumquats. She mentioned that she had a tree full of them that nobody ever ate and that she will remind us to come by. A year later now, she called to let us know her tree was ready for us. I couldn't believe she remembered. And here are the beauties I picked.....Thank you Jo!
I must add that Jo and her husband Kris Young, started our Ojai Locavore group and started the project Eat Local One Year last year. This year, they are hoping to get everyone to eat at least three completely local meals throughout the year.... Locavore Lite 2010. Check out their websites!
Come what may...
I will be always thankful for such great neighbors.
