I mentioned the apples the other day—there’s still a 20 litre bucket and a large bowl full of them in the kitchen. Then there are the melons I mentioned yesterday—a great heaping platter of them, and more to come in the next few days.
And a houseguest brought us a box of apricots as a gift.
And the grapes have started coming in, so there’s a colander full of them in the kitchen.
And today I went to pick up 200 daffodil bulbs I ordered, and it turns out that the woman selling the bulbs was the first person I ever sold goat kids to—she’s still got one of them. Anyway, so we got to talking (as you do), and next thing I know, she’s filling a bag with peaches for me—dead ripe and luscious.
So sitting in the kitchen right now are probably 10 kilos of fruit for every person in the family.
So I wonder, can you have too much fruit?
