    Similar problems in Britain, not because of covid, but because of our Govt.'s pig-headed extremist attitudes to the EU :-(

    So they're being left on trees because there's no market for them? Whatever the reason, it is a shame to let good food go to waste.

    Once upon a time the people of London used to travel to Kent every year to pick fruit etc etc, but this is not done now. But perhaps there will be a change in attitudes. There are plenty of unemployed that can do this, they just need the incentive!!!
    Think you have pinned your colours to the mast Michael on which way you voted in 2016, Lol. But seriously, do try to move on, its not healthy to be that bitter.

    What, move on to accept a fascist dictatorship where the Rule of Law no longer holds? No thanks.
