My Coconut Crop

The title is a phrase that I never thought that I would use -- my coconut crop.

Pictured above is the coconut palm tree on the north side of our patio. The coconuts are huge and ripe. They are ready for the picking. The problem is that I don't know how to get them down.

They are at least 20 feet in the air. I don't have a ladder that high. Certainly I am not going to climb the tree. We didn't get one good blow during hurricane season which is almost over. That usually brings some down.

I suppose that I will have to wait for nature to take its course. Someday I will get around to moving our barbecue which is directly under the coconut tree. It could get some serious dings from the falling coconuts.
