Fruit tree

This I love…some good friends have had trouble lately with birds eating the fruit off their tree in the garden, so they wrapped the fruit in plastic bags to protect them. Not only does the fruit get looked after, it has it’s own mini greenhouse to help it ripen and a catch all so when ready they don’t get ruined by falling to the lawn…..

what struck me (apart from the cute cleverness) was that here we all are, trying to be green and avoid the pitfalls and effects of buying from super-supermarkets…we toil by growing our own to make a difference and satisfy our concience, and we end up packaging it plastic anyway…there’s a deep sense of irony there for me.
