FRUITS OF LABOUR
September saw me patrolling the village to pick fruit from the abundant trees and bushes in our community. This year, apple pies and crumbles will remain on the Tearooms specials board until Christmas, such was the haul of cooking apples I raided from various sites.
Once collected, I drop off boxes of the fruit to villagers and some reciprocate with homemade chilli jelly (or similar) in return. A fair exchange.
