A Little Sumo Season

Gentle Friends, you may know or not about me that I can become obsessed with some things in my life.  One of these things is Sumo Citrus Season.  It's a short season from about mid-January to the first of April... that these delicious oranges are around.  I started stalking the produce at the two Safeways we go to and even the fruit vendor I get things from over in the Richmond District... well they came in this past week and we got some this morning...  here's a snap...

.. they are big and juicy and without seeds (usually)... a little pricey but so worth it!  Off to lunch at Patxi's Pizza with some friends today ... a super way to start off the weekend!

That's about it for today sports fans.  Thanks, for stopping by do stop again.  Stay Safe!

Good Thoughts! Good Words! Good Deeds1


  1. Dearest Edgar: I have had this fruit, it is amazing how sweet and juicy they are, so yummy.
    Have afun eating pizza, another yummy food.


  2. I'm obsessed with them too and haven't seen any yet here in VA. Have a fabulous weekend.

  3. Well, another "new" for me and another "really-wanna-try." We are truly and really isolated and eons behind things here in Nod I swear. Enjoy your weekend! ~Robin~

  4. I could not agree more. They are wonderful . So far , I haven't seen them in our stores yet. But as you might know, all the passes in the Cascades were closed last week! Our shelves are kind of bare!

  5. They have a very unusual shape. You can tell just by looking at them that they are sweet and juicy. It's the little things right? Enjoy.

  6. I'll be at Berkeley Bowl tomorrow and will keep an eye out for them. I'm thinking mimosas with my noon time breakfast. :-)

  7. Thanks for the heads up, Edgar! Have seen ads for them through Instagram, but haven't seen any in person yet. Have a fabulous weekend!

  8. I love the Sumo "oranges." They are $3 a pop where I live (VA) but worth it. They are delicious!


A Little Stitchin'

 Gentle Friends, I'm still slowly stitching away on Mary Ann... here's a snap... ... the top is in and now it's on the bottom ha...
