I can't remember visiting an orchard, but I do remember climbing the garage to pull fruit off my aunt's pear tree. Thanks for memory.

Hi Mandy,

Collards are greens, large, fibrous greens that must be washed thoroughly and then cooked till tender- a staple in southern cooking.

I like that word "scrumping" too! This is such a joyous haiku, it must have come from a happy memory.

Brings back memories of just a few weeks ago. (Can it be?) Scrumping and scrumpy! What a great word.

Scrumptious !
In fact I didn't know this adjective a minute ago.
Thanks to the American heritage dictionary of the English language.
