With Robert Rodriguez joining Edi on his first mission we were able to get 700 lbs of grapefruit from one tree (took three visits).
This puts us at 4,092lbs
for the year. Admittedly the grapefruit at Chandler Court did not give up easily and various deep scratches were sustained in the effort *(another reason we recommend long sleeve shirts and gloves) but we were triumphant.
Such a great success is the Picker Squadron that there has been no cases of scurvy in Concord since the Squadron’s inception six years ago and over 24 tons collected and distributed!
