Citrus Solar System

Who needs Styrofoam balls to create a solar system when citrus fruits come in at least eight different sizes, from a Mercury-sized lemon to a Jupiter-worthy pomelo.

Left to right: lemon, tangerine, orange, pink striped lemon, Meyers lemon, grapefruit, pomelo.

Man, the pomelo looks gigantic compared to all the others. I would have gladly picked the pomelos off your tree. :)

BTW, I added you to my blogroll. Would you like to sign up with my advertiser too? I get a little bonus for referring you, but they're great for making a bit of money from blogging.

WC, You are welcome to pomelos or any other citrus growing in our yard. It's the least I can do. Your blog helped get me through three weeks at the City of Hope after my stem cell transplant. (Email me privately, and I'll give you my address.)

I don't have much traffic yet, but would like to consider the advertiser.

And thanks for adding me to your blogroll!
