We Have Fruit!

5 years ago when we moved into our house we planted an orange tree.
Not one single piece of fruit...for the past 5 years!
This tree is special to Jeff...a good friend moved out of state years ago and gave it to him.
It was in a barrel for a long time, bearing fruit.
Ever since we transplanted it in our backyard, Jeff has babied it...too much water, not enough water, citrus steaks in the ground...all but praying over it!
The past several months, with all the craziness in our lives, he has neglected his baby.

...And we have fruit!! 5 of them!!

See what happens when you just leave it alone?!?!

We are planning an orange eating party with the kids!
