This pains me, but there's little I can do about it.
There are Pears by the hundreds,
Quinces by the score,
Apples by the bucket load,
And even Marrows by the dozen on the compost.... I could go on!
We eat as much as we can, and we preserve as much as we can. We encourage others to take whatever they want. And we despair as we watch so much good fruit and veg' go to waste.
It's something all us country folk get used to, I know; but it doesn't make over production any easier.
