We spent a couple of hours down the plot today, mainly weeding and cutting the paths (using the cuttings to mulch the raspberries), though we've still got a fair amount of clearing to get done. Need to make another bed or two for all the brassicas we've got coming on at home..sigh! If only work didn't get in the way of allotmenting!
Apple blossom on the dwarf tree (Charles Ross) we planted out earlier this spring. We went for an M27 (I think it was)...anyway it was the second smallest you can get. We were going to get the smallest but as we have poor soil, the nursery (Reads Nursery at Hales Hall, Norfolk) , recommended we get the next one up. We pruned the 'maiden' to about 1m high as per advised in one of the million books we've got.
Here's some of the black currant blossom. ...the bushes are covered in it!
...and some red currant blossom....and even some teeny berries!
