    If there good is fruit just going to waste why not contact a local
charity and see if they would be able to pick and use it?

    Last year I was getting more red raspberries than we needed.  I didn't 
have time to pick them, so I made up a sign saying "FREE, pick your own 
raspberries."  The director told me that the sign probably wouldn't do any 
good.  His clients desperately want raspberries but only if I pick and bring 
them.  Just in case, we hung the sign anyway and we hung it where it could 
not be missed.  The director was right.  Nobody came.  The berries ripened 
and fell on the ground with no one to pick them.
