When we moved into our Altadena home on a third of an acre, we inherited an orchard.
The problem was that there was no way that a family of three could use all of the lemons, oranges, grapefruits, pomelos, avocados, persimmons, plums, apricots and figs that our yard produced.
Thanks to COFE, the coop food exchange of Altadena, that's no longer a problem. You can read my first-person account of the group in the Home and Garden Section of the LA Times.
It will hit the stands on Saturday, September 13, but you can read it online by going here.
