Sour grapefruits

The dozen-or-so grapefruit trees are in full flush but who can eat more than half a grapefruit for breakfast without running out of sugar? What to do with the rest?

Their bright yellow colour make them ideal warning signs to mark the spots where stumps get in the way of the ride-on mower.

What an ingenious idea! May I suggest that every ride-on mower be sold complete with a box of grapefruits to prevent the owner from running into knobbly obstacles and damaging the mower's cutting-deck?

The next step of the process involves a chainsaw but first I want to inspect the contents of the old fridge in the shed.
