To pick or not to pick

So when the fruit hangs over the fence into your garden, I was told you
are allowed to pick them (to prevent them falling onto your property)
but must give them back. But I fancy a crumble for tea

I'm with Nige. They're much too tempting.

And how are they going to get to them, anyway?

i say take em, and if nextdoor ask, tell them that they fell off and your pig ate them.....or something.

Go on. You know you wanna.

Besides if the tree is that laden, they won't miss a couple.

Have them, you'll be doing them a favour, they'll never get through all those apples on their own :)

Why not just ask for a couple or is it that you actually want the thrill of scumping them?

If you really want to be nice about it, pick them, make two crumbles and take one to your neighbor as thanks for the apples..

prob not ripe yet ... I'm going to have a massive surplus of grapes this year - I'd send you some but they don't travel well ...

i'm sure they won't notice the odd apple going missing. the owners will probably want to get rid of them anyway if there are loads! mwahha!

Ashlea says:

No, you can't take them, because the priest picks them and sells them to make money for third world countrys.

Not that I'm trying to make you feel guilty for having crumble when I'm not there, but its the truth. Someone who goes to that church told me.

We'll not tell, if you save us a slice.

Ashlea - you know someone who goes to church? Anyway they never pick em form our side. In fact they rarely seem to pick em at all.

I could pick them and make a donation.

paintist says:

that sounds like a good plan....this is such a biblical problem, its apples the church knows how much trouble they cause......

Spiderbaby says:

I'm with Gael on this - they don't look ripe yet. *finds big spoon*.... Won't they hold on till Ashlea comes to visit? ;)

Can't add to the ripe/unripe debate (do they fall off when ripe... or is that when they are too ripe?) but I'm with the pick them group of people.

Assuming of course the rest of the tree is equally abundant in fruit - if you picked the only decent apples off it I'd start feeling guilty!

your apples!

kostika says:

The apples on our trees were ripe, so those may be ready to be picked.

Go on, you know you wanna.
