Getting fruity

I'm hugely enjoying the meticulous research into the best fruit varieties to choose for our 35m of south-facing wall at Abbey Gardens. We will plant circa 30 trees to be trained as single stem cordons, this winter - date TBC.

I found this appletastic site - which aims to get users to catalogue their apple trees for an all over the country (and world!) map. It has a way to go but I like the idea.

Just to prove it didn't rain all day ...

This is the beautiful orchard at the Monastery of St. John the Baptist. I particularly liked the fact their scarecrows wore habits.

More photos of our trip are here.
