Oranges & Chickens


Friday 21 February, 2014 by Uncle Spike

It’s a sort of changeover season around the farm. The winter crops of Clementines are all finished. It was a good year – I even made a profit from the main crop…. Not exactly gonna get rich; we are only talking an annual profit of maybe $300. So add in my time to the equation and I guess I can pay myself $3.00 an hour – RESULT 😀




So now, just a few lemons remain, leaving Tangerines and Oranges as the last of the winter citrus offering…




At this time of year I get fit… it’s time to trim and prune 200 trees, spread goat poo (best fertiliser you can get for citrus and olive trees) and prepare the ground for ploughing.

Of course, all this activity is of great interest to our feathered friends, who follow my every move, all day, every day.

  3. Great to see the orange tree with lot of fruits, and it’s so low. Collecting them won’t be an issue at all, right 🙂
