November 2018

We are now entering a quieter time for the orchard. There is less need for workdays so we will only be organising monthly ones until the Spring. Please check the ‘What’s on’ page for dates. Winter jobs will include weeding and pruning of trees and fruit bushes.

A final picking and juicing day was held on the 17th November, producing more bottles of fresh, tasty apple juice. We are storing some in the shed on the newly purchased apple rack. The intention is to see how well they store over the coming months.

Although there are still lots of vegetables growing on the allotment plots, there is little to be seen now in the orchard. We did have a good crop of sloe berries and the birds have been enjoying them too!
