This could have a happy ending but this story isn’t told yet.
Two years ago I had a bucket full of crabapples. A neighbour had an ornamental fruit tree in her garden and she assumed that the fruit wasn’t something you could eat.

But I had a cunning plan.
At my work there were some crabapple trees that were just coming to fruit.
I asked permission to use them and soon had a small bag full.
