For her final project at FCI, Sandy’s designing a series of citrus-themed recipes, which she’ll ultimately articulate in a printed portfolio. To complement the recipes, she wanted some photos of citrus in the wild.

So while we were in the Rio Grande Valley over Thanksgiving, we visited the orchard behind her grandmother’s house in Hargill, and a fruit stand on 281, just south of Falfurrias.

Below are some of the photos from the trip, not all necessarily citrus-specific.

More to come.
