A Fruitful Afternoon.

This afternoon me and Tess have been fruit picking. We have picked a bucket full of Plums, some Figs, Blackberries and Raspberries. The Plums are just starting to ripen as the Raspberries are coming to an end. I think we have had most of the Figs now too.

Well we have half an hour to go so I think I will finish the day bagging the rest of the Onions before delivering the produce to the hall. I'm not sure who will end up with it but that's not something I like to dwell on to much.

We planted this tree 4 years ago and its now starting to give a good crop of fruit. Now we just need to find something to do with them. Any ideas?

Ivy Trimming

At the moment I am clearing Ivy from some railings. Its something I like to do every year but for some reason it got missed last year so its proving to be a bit more of a job than usual. Over the wall the farmer is harvesting Beans and I can see at least five Buzzards following the combine. I guess that they are looking for any dinner that is uncovered by the combine

Dead Heading

Even though the Summer is almost over its important to keep up with the dead heading, especially the Dahlias as these will carry on flowering a good few weeks yet provided there is no frost. Also it improves their overall display no end.
