Over 40 kg of plums and nearly 90 kg of apples were harvested this morning, with the bulk of the harvest distributed to Food is Free Laneway. This amazing bounty came from just three trees! The plum tree (see picture below) didn’t look that stunning until you got up close – it was loaded with fruit. Three people picked steadily for over an hour and we still left plenty on it!
More harvests are likely next week, so keep checking the website – and make sure to register as a harvest volunteer so you get direct emails about future harvests.
Happy pickers at the end of the morning
.. and the fruit is NOW at Food is Free Laneway so please get down to share in some. The plums are very ripe so we hope they are all taken this weekend.
