Too Many Oranges

I've been wondering what to do with the tiny oranges on the ornamental orange tree, especially now that the new orange blossoms have budded.

I moved the tree outdoors for the summer, and now a chipmunk dashes back and forth, from the stone wall, across the terrace, to the orange tree. Sometimes, i find a tiny orange (the size of a big marble) on the stone wall. But now i'm finding orange peels underneath the little tree.

I can tell you these oranges are extremely sour. I love kumquats, but these little oranges are way beyond kumquat sourness. Maybe the chipmunk doesn't have the tastebuds for sour?

When we have too much, of anything, it's good to offer it to someone else, even if it is a chipmunk.
