Great advice on gleaning and how to get started at it. Every year there are many fruit trees that have been around for years and the people that own them may no longer have a large family or may have sold the place and the new owners don’t use the fruit so it just goes to waste. You can watch in your neighborhood for these neglected offerings and if you see some fruit left to fall off the tree and rot, go and ask if you can harvest the fruit. You could even offer to do the harvesting for a share of the produce or if you plan to make jam offer to return with a jar of it as exchange for the fruit. Most times if they are just letting it fall and lay they will let you have the fruit. We have a neighbor with a pear tree that just drops the pears in their yard, I think I will ask if we can pick them.
