When Life Gives Your Neighbor Lemons, Ask For Some | Jonathan Kim
Tina Miller, MA,CFLE stashed this in Rhetoric
But in general, if your neighbor has some visible fruits or vegetables growing that you're interested in, don't be afraid to ask if you can buy some. I'm guessing they'll say yes, and they may even give them to you for little or nothing. And if you can offer them something in return, particularly something homemade or homegrown, that business transaction could turn into something more -- a relationship that could continue to bear fruit (sorry) for years.
