Fruit trees are loaded this year

Our fruit trees are so heavily loaded with fruit, branches on the plum trees have broken in last nights storm. Apples, plums, figs, the latter two  which the birds are enjoying. Peaches, pears, a bumper crop this year. Bunches of grapes developing nicely. Makes me remember "harvest festivals" where we used to go to church and one took for others less fortunate what you had grown. As we did not grow fruit when I was young, my mother always sent us off to church with tins of fruit or peas!
Remember harvest festivals?
