MORE OF IT than we need, at least at the moment.
I picked a boxfull of crabapples today -- there's another two boxes on the tree, and a quarter of the crop has already dropped. A few days ago I picked up enough fallen fruit from apples, nectarines, pears, to fill a 30-gallon garbage can. We took a case of pluots to the bakery today, maybe a quarter of the crop, from the one tree. The bluejays are pecking at the Duchesse d'Angouleme pears, but there's plenty left. We took a box of Seckel pears to Jojo in Oakland a couple of days ago; I hope Mary Jo can turn them to good account.
When I go outside I eat a nectarine or a pluot, three or four times a day. We won't even mention the blackberries.
