Last fall I posted this picture of a beautiful Japanese persimmon tree:
I made a few remarks on what a lovely tree it was and how good it was to see people growing fruit…
…and then, recently, on the drive up to church, I noticed…
Somebody cut it down.
What kind of a monster would cut down a fruit tree? Particularly a productive fruit tree?
Did they not realize that those fruits were worth at least $2 EACH at the farmer’s market?
Here’s my bet: I’ll bet someone ate the fruit when they weren’t fully ripe, then chopped the tree down because they didn’t like the astringency.
“Sheeeooot, that thing tastes NASSSY! Ima go get the chain saw!”
I am appalled.
