1) Pick all of the fruit for the kitchen when it is at its best (note: an in-situ taste test is mandatory!)
2) After delivering the harvest to the kitchen, return to the garden and commence weeding between all of the soft fruit plants, trees and bushes etc.
3) All of the fruit you now find and must have missed earlier must be consumed immediately and under no circumstances returned to the kitchen.
Make an assessment of the amount of fruit. Not much. Not worth bringing into the house today. The pathetic few eaten in situe. Carry on eating. There turns out to be more than was at first apparent. But definitely not enough to bring in now. Carry on eating. Satisfactory result.
