The orchard is now entering its abundant season and there has been plenty of soft fruit to pick. Blackcurrant, red and white currants, gooseberries, jostaberries, raspberries, blackberries and some early ripening plums.
The change in the weather has brought more rain. This has been good news for the fruit trees but some have suffered during the drought.
There were also others in the orchard interested in eating the fruit. Picking the plums could be very hazardous at times!
It looks like there is going to be a good crop of apples again this year. Dates for the juicing and picking weekend are on our ‘What’s on’ page.
