From the mouths of (14 year old) babes

Yesterday we had a third round of rimon-picking from our tree.  As I looked at  the garden table, which was completely covered with bright red fruit, I said to myself out loud, that maybe it would be easier to be "mafkir" the fruit than to pick everything at once, separate maasrot and then call all the neighbours to come take some.  

N, our wonderful 14 year old said, "We don't just pass up a mitzva , just cuz it's hard.  There is a reason you moved to Eretz Yisrael - to be able to separate terumot and maasrot."

Can't argue with that one.   

Rimonim, anyone?  We have about 80 here.  Maasrot have already been separated.
