Can’t visit Florida without visiting an Orange Grove. It turns out this is not the harvesting season. The orange juice I tasted was not as good as Bayside Skillet in Ocean City, Maryland, the best fresh squeezed orange juice I have ever tasted.
The Mixon Fruit Farm tour was given by a lifelong orange grower.
Can you tell what they are? Neither can I. They are various oranges (including Valencia and Naval), lemons, limes, grapefruit, and something that is like a grapefruit, but is not.
They even had coconut trees.
Part of the tour included rescued animals by Wildlife, Inc. they use part of the farm’s land for rehabilitation of the animals, and education of the public through a live exhibit.
hawks, a bob cat and even a hick turtle
To their fish pond. Where we were met with open mouths.
They are called Anoles, a harmless lizard. Would you like me to bring one home to you?
