Want it. Can't have it.



So, I toiled in February. I gave this tree my all.

Love, care, attention all because I'm easily seduced by the flesh. And yet the best most juiciest delights remain off limits, out of reach. This is mightily unfair. Just what is a guy to do to get his hands on these ripe beauties?

Like all good hunter-gatherers, I have a plan...

Climb a ladder

Hehe, how frustrating. You can get a device for that - search 'apple picker' - but it'll set you back a tenner or so. I daresay you could improvise something similar though...

Tom, saw a 'drainpipe picker' in this foraging article and thought of you... http://www.guardian.co.uk/lifeandstyle/2010/jul/29/foraging-wild-food-hedgerow

The Hapless Kitchen Gardener

I only feel hapless because some people make it look easy to grow 10 ft marrows or a banquet of greens whereas my courgettes got nabbed by killer slugs and I only got one raspberry. So tips and stories from people less hapless than I are more than welcome.
