I'm anxiously watching the weather forecast to see if frost is going to threaten my fruit trees, as they make the transition from their barren winter state to the first signs of the harvest to come. Another couple of weeks without frost and all that devotion to the mysterious art of pruning should pay off!
|Many of the trees are fan trained to make best use of space|
|Damson - makes distinctive tasting puddings|
|These will be black, juicy grapes in August|
|Peaches are the first to ripen and should be ready in June - very juicy|
|Figs are my favorite but need a lot of sun - anyone seen it recently??|
|A new apple tree - Peasgood Nonsuch - I hope the apples are as good as the name.|
