You can pick them up once they've fallen on the ground.

We do it all the time, it's called foraging. :D

Seriously though, we see this happen all the time on our travels, people mushrooming or looking for snails. We pick Sloes to make Sloe gin from the hedgerows and there's a walnut tree that may belong to us at the bottom of the garden (or probably doesn't) which gives us a year's supply or more.

I don't think it counts as foraging if it's a tree in someone's garden! 😉
Countryside hedgerows are surely fair game? I'm eyeing up some sloes that will only be accessible on horseback!

AS in the folk song Sally Gee - Bob Fox and Stu Luckley:

But never mind, the lass she's kind, I knaa she is good hearted,
And the cast in her eye makes her look shy and I wish we never had parted.
She's got a hump and she walks with stick and she's always good to me.
I'm fond of the lass that none can pass, the lass down on the quay.

I could have said anywhere exile. If you're on Twitter search Falkirk. Or even Google Falkirk racist. OMG! The worst example of female behaviour I think I've ever seen.
