• The apple harvest in full swing

    It's that time of year again & the apple harvest is in full swing. Some trees are laden while others a bit thin, but still reckon we should have about 4 tons of cider apples to bag and deliver. Thankfully the weather has been kind to us lately & it's been really very pleasant to be in the orchard. We've been doing some pruning along the way, getting rid of mistletoe and cutting back quite hard on some of the long straggling growth.

    Many thanks to daughter Ro and her boyfriend John who came up last week and helped shake, gather & bag. I reckon we've already got about 1.5 tons into the cider works.

    Loved the islands and atolls of the cider apples randomly fallen on to the blue tarpaulin ocean - and then there was exhausted Jan & daft Flossie standing on top of her.
