WHAT'S GREEN AND WEIGHS 30 POUNDS?
234 KIWI FRUIT!!
I picked the ones I could reach and there are probably hundreds more up there in the neighbor's vines that are choking out the trees that hang over my yard and fence.
These are hard and will take weeks to ripen, in the crisper drawer and / or stored in egg cartons in my unheated pantry. I have to pick them now before the frosts, rains, squirrels, and birds get to them. They usually ripen on the vines by December.
I still have kiwi-ginger marmalade from last season (or was it 2008?!) in my pantry. I'm thinking I will probably just eat these fresh, freeze some, and give away some. I have a little grand-nephew who is ga-ga over kiwi!
