    Don't throw apples at old people. They bruise easily and bruised apples are no good for anything

    another thought is if you have loads
    if you live in a place where you can do this :eek:
    is to sell them,and give to charity:)
    folks here where i live put them out at their gate in a washing basket.
    with a money tin attached.
    and ask for donations.
    plastic bags can also be put under the basket.
    and a note saying maybe 6 apples for £1.00:)
    its amazing how many people walk past your gate......:D
    can you sell fresh produce at a car boot.
    ive no idea:confused::
    but im sure loads of people would buy organic food :rolleyes::eek:
