The apple cart
There's a village I drive through on the way to work each day.
There's lots of old buildings, barns, farmhouses and also orchards.
In one orchard in particular, there's a lovely old wooden cart, underneath the apple tree, perfect for catching windfalls.
The village dates back to medieval times, when all the farms worked together as a cooperative. All the villagers helped each other out, with sharing their produce, exchanging harvests, and just generally being a close community.
