Grapefruits

1. It takes approx eleven shakes of the tree (1 per branch) to down approx 180 grapefruit.
2. 180 grapefruits completely fill a wagon approx 3 foot by 1 foot by piled high.
3. I had to use the children's wagon cos the new one doesn't have a back on it. Yet. A wagon without a back is useless for grapefruits. In fact it isn't a wagon at all. It's a dray.
4. 120 grapefruits take approx 50 minutes to squeeze by hand.
5. 120 grapefruits yield 3 litres of juice and forty litres of compost. (The compost bucket formerly contained 10 litres of paint.)
6. Approx 0 members of the BHPC are in a position to challenge these claims.
7. Approx 0 members of the BHPC want to.
8. I have a sore shoulder.
9. And the kitchen floor's all sticky.
10. And I've still got sixty to do.
11. And the tree's still got hundreds and hundreds on it.
12. Whinge whinge whinge etc. for quite a long time.

Conclusion: You must have weak hands or should find a more more efficient way of squeezing them.


6. Approx 0 members of the BHPC are in a position to challenge these claims.


True, but has that ever stopped us in the past?

7. Approx 0 members of the BHPC want to.

Incorrect.

I know how much you enjoy receiving criticism from people on things they haven't done so I thought I would make an effort...

8. I have a sore shoulder.

Must be doing it wrong then...  Poor technique I should say...

Paul L;  No of grapefruits actually squeezed =  0.  Critique given on grapefruit squeezing = 1.  Critique on grapefruit squeezing that was well received = 0
