Can you see the Fruit Trees through the Forrest?

Today, as I was walking my usual lunch break route, I thought of how much time and energy is “wasted” on trees that do nothing but “look good”. I spoke aloud looking at the gal next to me waiting to cross the street, who asked if I was on a cell, and I said no, that I was talking aloud. I commented at how many trees Portland has and why don’t we have any fruit trees? Or, edible nut trees? She agreed and said that it was a great idea. Maybe there are and I just don’t see them. However, People are going hungry and we are spending tons of money to keep “synthetic aesthetic” trees alive. I totally understand the really old ones, but new ones are being planted all the time, why not a “few” fruit trees? It would benefit wildlife as well. If there are fruit trees out there that people can freely pick from, feel free to correct me, send me the information, I will publish the statistical data.

A previous landlord used to sell whole boxes of apples for $5 right off his driveway. My mother did the same when we had an abundance. She would take boxes to school putting them out for staff and kids for free in the lunch rooms. We have all this property and land, people are going hungry, but we can’t plant a few sustainable elements, in adequate placement, that would nourish those who are on the street or even just to understand what it really means to be self sufficient/ sustainable?? There are plenty of native fruit trees that would add value to our city, that wouldn’t cost much, and could be treated as if they die they die and we plant another one instead of trying to keep it alive! The strong ones will keep until something happens, just like in nature. When inhabitants weren’t around, the tree died and new ones sprung up, simple as that. Spray a bit here an there and leave it at that. If you have land, use it to it’s fullest capacity, including community gardens! Stop the HOA bull and get some use of the land!

Can you see the Fruit Trees through the Forrest? It’s harvest time. If you have an abundance of fruits or vegetables make sure it gets to the gleaners and pantries for the hungry and poor (Sunshine Food Division /http://www.sunshinedivision.org . “Pick your own” Here is a link to canning your own fruits and vegetables. http://tinyurl.com/9cfcymu Make a home baked pie for Charity!
