Harvest time!

September 17, 2017

This year we had a really good harvest of sweet plums in our garden. When the fruits are in their fullest form, the “wow” effect is obvious.


In my friend’s garden, she has an apple tree and a pear tree, two mature and gorgeous fruity trees I would say, and the harvest this year was also fantastic.



I’d think If you have a reasonable sized back garden, it would be a good idea to grow one or two fruity trees. That will always make you smile and expect something happening in the autumn, because, as an old saying goes like, “when you plant marrow seeds you’ll get marrows, and when you plant bean seeds you’ll have beans back.”

The below photo was taken at a small village near Pisa in Italy, when I visited there with a friend a couple of years ago. It was a public street scene, rows of orange trees for harvesting. But it seemed nobody bothered to pick the fruits, maybe it’s too much of this around the area and becoming cheapish. When goods are abundant everyone can have it within reach.

However, it’s impossible that everything is free. We did pay for our tea/coffee and snacks at a local shop when we took a break. The town was quiet and people were friendly.
