KEY LIME JELLY??!! Holy moley, where can I get some?

That's MY question. I never heard of Key Lime jelly but where do you get it?

Dear Julie and Bill,

I had forgotten that it isn't widely available out there in the world at large because every touristy place in south and central Florida, at least, sells it. I buy it at the orchard where I buy all of my citrus. It's harder to get the key limes themselves, although you can sometimes come by those in some grocery stores and produce stands. I'll see if there is a mail-order place from which to order such.

Here's one:

but just google it, there's a thousand of them.



The complete fauna of Florida? You have both gators and manatee?

Or do manatee not count since they aren't native fauna, but invaders irresponsibly released, like love bugs and nile perch?

Thank you, Steven!

Dear Franklin,

As a matter of fact we do have a gator in the local retention pond (close enough) and any number of Manatees, including, thanks to Samuel, Barbara Manatee. (Stuffed of course).

As to manatees, I don't think they are exogenous, though I could be wrong about that. They are West Indian Manatees and I believe they are Migratory up and down the coast. But I'll have to look into that. Thank you.
