Unpicked grapes?

Post by Sally » Mon 24 Oct 2011 21:14

Any idea why so many of the red grapes remain unpicked on the road to Perpignan airport around Baixas/Peyrestortes?

The birds were having a feast! Just curious....

Thanks!

Various reasons.
They could have been rotten or damaged at harvest. They could have been missed by the machine or they could have been just left because they were surplus to the farmer's quota and not worth picking.
