Yesterday, before hosting BBQ, I took my friend Mariko from Hong Kong to pick up fruits in a forest close to Canada Water. It took her 2 minutes to get the excitement about picking up fruit.
Every piece and finding more bushes is a good and healthy challenge!
Am I that weird? picking up wild fruit instead to go to the supermarket and buy? But what about the excitement of doing it?
All my life I have been wandering around the forest and supplying myself with fruit. In Germany it was really easy, I had my apple, pear and plums trees ready to collect. Once I took 10kg (my bike basket completely full) of plums...What to do? Well, it looked amazing as a present for my friends!

Also England gave me tons of fruits. Once I picked 96 apples from 4 trees (Again, my bike basked and backpack completely full. And 4 apples felt from the basket!)What do to with so many apples?
Apart from giving apples to all my friends, there are many good ideas to do:

And what about waking up in a tropical island and going down to the beach and pick up a just fallen coconut for breakfast?

I am coming soon, blackberries...;)
Am I the only crazy blogger around that collect her own fruit?
