Subject: RE: BS: Hedgerows and Verges
I've been stupid with my apple trees. I've let them go all biennial on me. There'll be a great crop this year and I'll be giving groaning bag-for-life's-full of them away to all and sundry. Next year I'll be lucky if I can sink my teeth into any at all... My Discovery apples are cropping well already and they are utterly delicious. Bloody blackbirds are scoffing my autumn-fruiting raspberries and shitting red birdshit all over my garden furniture. They'll soon move on, and I do love me blackbirds to bits...
