    It was all good. Do you mostly eat the kumquat on its own or do you make sweets with them? (The more I typed 'kumquat', the more I had to check my spelling because it never looks right to me!)

    Ive never had them anyway but plain, raw, whole. Our farmers markets have them in the spring, and although Ive heard of doing other things with them, the novelty of eating a whole citrus is entertainment enough.
    The local gardening show featured this grower, who has all sorts of kumquat varieties.

    But buying a tree in the mail seems sorta weird.

    My spelling was fine, then my brain left me.

    Inmom, my Dad was a cop outside New Orleans for a couple years (it's how he and my mom met actually, she was a dispatcher). Anyway, for Mardi Gras they used to pull from all the local towns for police. That pretty much ruined Mardi Gras for my dad. If we even mention it, he goes on and on about how much crime happens there. I've never been able to enjoy Mardi Gras because of that.
    But it sounds like a fabulous party, even if I too would be enjoying your pets more than the people. :-)
