A heavy basket

The weather has broken. We’ve had sheets of rain that sounded so loud I wondered if it was hail.

In view of this, I decided to pick the rest of our pomegranates, which will only split otherwise.

I also felt the quinces again, and some of them came away from the twig with only a slight twist. Others aren’t ready yet: I would have had to break the twig to get them off manually.

I ended up with quite a heavy basket since each fruit weighs on average 350 – 400g.

Basket of quinces and pomegranates

There were quinces and pomegranates for sale in the greengrocer’s today- smaller and seedier-looking than ours. I reckon the pomegranate in the basket with the leaves attached could have been a prizewinner if it hadn’t been for the very small slit in it.
