Tie a yellow ribbon… for Mundraub

So no, I’m not reporting about that famous old pop song here, but of some very nice idea about allowing people to just pluck & eat fruits of all kinds, see the mundraub.org page.

On the Streuobstwiesen between the villages of Mörfelden and Walldorf, we have that new “Aktion Gelbes Band” which basically says that the owners of trees who don’t harvest themselves can allow people to go and pluck and eat, just to avoid waste. See their flyer about it here. I asked Mitchie who told me that she has an app on her phone for that, and that she and her colleague sometimes go and eat directly from those trees, and I wanted to see it – so here you go:

There aren’t only apples, but also chestnuts, pairs, berries, all kinds of fruits:

What a nice idea. Oh, and yes, like on the cities’ web pages, there are sheep there as well – who, just like us, seek the shadows now:

This last one sniffed my hand just like cats do – and accepted some green grass from Mitchie.

Speaking about cats: Wilma was also here when we came back, and she also needed to eat & drink, just like the others did earlier.

As always, thanks for reading and for viewing.
