Something for Nothing ???
I'm a bit perplexed. We have a load of citrus fruit this year , oranges, mandarins and lemons. I sent an email to all our neighbours to see if they wanted any and only one responded. Last week I decided to pick a box full of mandarins and one of lemons and put them down at our gate with a sign saying they are FREE. No takers still, now it isnt the busiest road but still. When we were out on the weekend and I said this everyone that was there wanted some but still no one has come to get any. Maybe I should put a sign saying very expensive, organic fruit. What really troubles me is that it is so difficult to get fresh fruit and veg around here and people would rather eat the poor quality stuff then stop at the gate!
