Flowers, apples, peaches and greengages!


Today, I’ve been drinking beer in my hammock and planting stuff in the garden.


And eating the gooseberries, which seem to be just about ready!


The rhubarb is recovering from the “drought”


Picture of the peaches that were growing. I need the tree to get better established so I removed them


The Bramley apple is also fruiting!


As is the greengage!


And finally check out the freakishly long blackberries!

Adding Trees


After several hours of digging and hacking the hawthorn stumps have defeated me. I’ve decided to saw them off below ground level and use a brushwood killer on them.

I’m replacing them with several fruit trees. The lidl trees seem to on the whole have survived, except the cherry which died early on.

We’ve decided to change the layout to an easier to maintain and cheaper one with a bigger orchard! So we bought a Victoria plum and a greengage and as the place was closing down they gave us 25% off and a free cherry! Bargain!
