Today I will just give you a quick look at the fruit garden as things are progressing well now.
In this first picture you can see the Tayberry which I showed you a few weeks ago. They are starting to turn ripe now, when they are ready for picking the fruit will be a dark purple in colour and twice the size of a Raspberry. After this picture was taken I had to net the Tayberry as I could see the birds were taking the berries. It seems to me that we feed the birds all winter just so they can spend all summer eating our fruit.
The next picture is of one of the Fig trees in the garden. When I first came the trees were over grown and neglected so what fruit we’ve had in the past has been hard to get at so I’ve cut them right back and trained the new shoots in to the wall. This is the first year of producing fruit since being trained.
I don’t know if any of you have noticed or are even bothered but I will point out that I have a new little feature in my sidebar highlighting some of the jobs that I do through my day/week.
