We did it yall! There was a last minute call from waayyy up in Alpharetta to get an unidentifiable fruit — they weren’t quite sure if it was an apple or a pear. It turned out to be a gigantic Asian pear tree, easily loaded with 400+ lbs of fruit. We shook them all out down in to a ditch in the darkness, and loaded up our bags without needing any light — one could just feel in the darkness and find endless fruit on the ground. We may even make it to 10,500 this year, but we wanted to knock out some of the sorting and donation early on so we could cross the line ASAP. Thanks for all your help this year everyone! As a friend pointed out, 10,000 lbs has got to be at least 43 baby elephants. … That’s a lot of food right?
