There probably is a very good reason.  I am sure that there is a very good explanation… but

Do they all have to come ripe at once?


The cooks in the family have been industriously sterilizing jars and making up a sugar syrup and taking the skin off and so on and on.  That’s only a very small part!  There are more on the opposite counter, and yet more in the cellar.  They’ll be very welcome this winter, but why do they all seem to come at once?

And we’re not done yet!


Where’s the ladder?
