October has been a mixed bag, with warm sunny days, and temperatures cold enough to give us frost and ice. The Orchard is starting to take on it’s Autumn colour.Many of the surrounding trees have already lost their leaves.
We had a wonderfully successful apple picking and juicing day. Lots of members turned up to help and we also had eight families visit in the afternoon to juice their own apples.
Maintainance continues including grass cutting, hopefully this will not continue much longer. We are now planning the winter pruning and focusing on the forest garden again. There were still some apples on the trees but they are all picked.
