Grapefruit Galore!

We have had a fabulous crop of grapefruit this year. They are unbelievably huge. You can hardly even see Jonathan's face. In the picture of the three kids (this was the day we picked all of them), they are each holding a grapefruit and an orange (also from one of our trees) so you can see the difference in size. It's a mystery to me why they do so well some years, since we don't do anything to the tree. They are incredibly sweet pink grapefruit.
Benjamin had the great idea of selling them at our garage sale, which is why they are all loaded in the van. Unfortunately for him, it rained most of the morning, so he only made $9.50. Many of the people didn't buy any because of the medicine they are on. He also learned about pricing - he started the morning asking .50 each or 3/$1.00 but quickly dropped his price to 4/$1.00. I wish shipping wasn't so expensive, or I would send them to all of our out-of-state friends. They are simply delicious!
