Record start for apple season as Britain’s orchards bear fruit six weeks early

Interesting Article

Although most of my trees are mid to late season I wonder what will happen this year. I hope they’re not all off the trees by September, it would make the last few minuets of the three season piece a bit dull.

Season 3 and Roger joins the orchestra.

Season Three

It’s been a long long winter and I’ve dusted off the tape measure and note book and we’re off again. So far this year all six of the original trees have apples and the score is looking busy already and it’s only June.

We also have a new member, one of Roger Deakin’s apple trees was very kindly donated in January by a friend of Deakin’s and now ‘Roger’ is spreading his roots up the allotment. Too soon for flowers and apples off Roger but he’s looking healthy so hopefully he’ll be adding his own notes to the score next year.
