Speaking of cold, oranges do not like it!  When it gets really cold we hang a shop light in the orange tree to help warm it up a bit.  It looks like our long cold spell hurt some of the high hanging fruit and branches, but for the most part the crop is OK.  We have a bumper crop of oranges this year; I have no idea why.  For Christmas Jerry gave me a juicer so we will have fresh squeezed orange juice for a while.  I love having enough to share.  We scrub the oranges all pretty and leave a bag on each neighbor's porch on Christmas Eve, an enjoyable bit of old time Christmas joy.
