Netting the Fruit

Protecting stuff is one of the main activities in a country garden,; protecting seedlings from extreme heat, protecting  trees from animal attack, or as in this photograph, protecting fruit from birds.

The thing about some birds, especially parrots, is that  they don't necessarily want to eat the fruit.  They just enjoy nipping the fruit off the branch, watching it fall then repeating the process until there is no fruit left.  

So even if the fruit is a long way from ripe nets need to be put in place early.
