I don’t think there is anything like this in Ottawa so I’m going to write about a FABULOUS thing that is going on in Toronto that I am TOTALLY jealous of.
It’s a ‘service’ that will come to your property and pick your edible plants for you. You get 1/3 of the harvest, the pickers get 1/3 and the last third goes to feed those in need. WIN WIN WIN. Basically you just register and you detail what kind of tree you have. I wonder if they would do things like grape vines and raspberry bushes too. It’s not clear from the website.
I have an apple tree that goes totally to waste because:
- I don’t know how to care for it in a way that prevents bug holes
- I can’t reach most of it
- I generally don’t know when they are ready to pick
Do any of you know if Ottawa has anything like this? If not, how hard would it be to organize such a thing? Would any of you be willing to join me in such a venture?
How do you suggest I keep my apples from being mauled by insects?
