Oranges, by John McPhee. Farrar, Straus and Giroux,A ny piece of fruit has a story inside. You could say the seed is the beginning, the plant that grows is the middle, and the fruit that falls is the happy ending. Plant another seed and you can tell it all over again.

Question: I have a plum tree severely affected by black knot disease, but it still produces a lot of plums. Can I still eat them? In general, when you see healthy fruits on a plant suffering from a disease, they still remain perfectly edible and safe to eat. This is not only the case for plums or cherries on black knot-ridden trees, but also tomatoes or squashes from plants suffering from powdery mildew and other leaf diseases or cherries or currants on plants with leaf spot, to give only a few examples.
Fruits superficially marked by disease are also edible. Apples with small amounts of scab or tomatoes slightly affected by late blight remain perfectly delicious and safe to eat: just remove the lesions with a knife.
Obviously, to what degree you tolerate these kinds of imperfection depends largely on you. Also, your tolerance will likely depend on the circumstances. That said, there are diseases, such as botrytis rot, that affect both foliage and fruits or fruits alone and really go too far.
They alter the taste or texture of the fruit, giving dry, soggy or rotten fruits that are very unappetizing. Generally, they are of such inferior quality that the problem—and the solution—is obvious! Not to say that even fruits severely affected by disease are harmful per se there are few plant diseases that can affect humans, ergot [a disease of rye] being the main exception , but there is no reason to consume a fruit that is in such bad shape.
When a fruit is thoroughly rotten, simply dump it in the compost bin. So, sick plants can often produce delicious, healthy fruits … and fruits moderately affected by superficial diseases are also edible.

This Quote From 'The Bell Jar' Is Always Used Out-Of-Context & It Changes The Whole Meaning
From fairest creatures we desire increase, That thereby beauty's rose might never die, But as the riper should by time decease, His tender heir might bear his memory: But thou contracted to thine own bright eyes, Feed'st thy light's flame with self-substantial fuel, Making a famine where abundance lies, Thy self thy foe, to thy sweet self too cruel: Thou that art now the world's fresh ornament, And only herald to the gaudy spring, Within thine own bud buriest thy content, And, tender churl, mak'st waste in niggarding: Pity the world, or else this glutton be, To eat the world's due, by the grave and thee. When forty winters shall besiege thy brow, And dig deep trenches in thy beauty's field, Thy youth's proud livery so gazed on now, Will be a totter'd weed of small worth held: Then being asked, where all thy beauty lies, Where all the treasure of thy lusty days; To say, within thine own deep sunken eyes, Were an all-eating shame, and thriftless praise. How much more praise deserv'd thy beauty's use, If thou couldst answer 'This fair child of mine Shall sum my count, and make my old excuse,' Proving his beauty by succession thine! This were to be new made when thou art old, And see thy blood warm when thou feel'st it cold. Look in thy glass and tell the face thou viewest Now is the time that face should form another; Whose fresh repair if now thou not renewest, Thou dost beguile the world, unbless some mother. For where is she so fair whose uneared womb Disdains the tillage of thy husbandry? Or who is he so fond will be the tomb Of his self-love, to stop posterity?

Dark Fruit: A Cultural and Personal History of the Plum
The Atlantic Monthly October Europeans coming to America are surprised by the brilliancy of our autumnal foliage. There is no account of such a phenomenon in English poetry, because the trees acquire but few bright colors there. The autumnal change of our woods has not made a deep impression on our own literature yet. October has hardly tinged our poetry.
Awake ye muses nine, sing me a strain divine,.
Poems Selected by George Elliott Clarke
Example: Dan was an older man with back problems, so he disliked having to carry in a car full of groceries. Lifting everything inside was such a pain! But one day when Dan returned from shopping, his neighbor came over to help. At the bottom of an apple tree or pretty much any fruit tree for that matter , you might see the fruit it produces laying on the ground. The fruit falls off the branches and drops to the ground, but it remains close to the tree it came from. But who came up with this proverb?
When I first read The Bell Jar , I was shocked to discover that it is not, in fact, a huge bummer of a book. I'd been hoping for the sort of terrifically sad book that I could read while sobbing in the bathtub. But that wasn't what I got although I did still read it in the bathtub, out of principle. The Bell Jar is witty. It's real. It's harrowing too, of course, as it chronicles young Esther Greenwood's struggle with depression and soul-crushing summer internships. It's not a book that romanticizes mental illness, though.
This anti-lynching poem was written by Abel Meeropol, a teacher, Southern trees bear a strange fruit For the sun to rot, for the tree to drop.
All the elements that make an apple taste good have fled, though there may have been a few stragglers on the threshold just tip-toeing out through the exit door as I bit into the soft blandness. The slight acidity, the yielding crunch, the scent of tree, have evaporated and left behind this sapless fraud, though the deception may not have been its but mine; after all, it made no pretense to be anything other than a two-month-old apple, whereas I should have known better. I know my apple made no contact with anybody other than my own hands because it was I who pulled it off its branch, it was I who carefully stored it along with its over fifty peers harvested from the one tree in our garden, a Cox Orange Pippin planted twelve years ago and given to my husband and me by my only aunt, now dead, who visited us intermittently but always unannounced, and would spend whole weekends in the kitchen hunched over the sink as she peeled potatoes or stood at the Aga with her eyes fixed on the progress of a stew, an activity I have never been able to decipher—was it kindness or was it meant to be a subtle message about my own cooking?RELATED VIDEO: Nursery establishment and management part 1
Compiled by Michael P. Some see Nature all ridicule and deformity, and some scarce see Nature at all. But to the eyes of the man of imagination, Nature is Imagination itself. That's where the fruit is. Months and Seasons.
