Quite tempted to plant a quince, to be honest. We definitely need a bigger garden for our dream orchard of apricots, peaches, cherries, a walnut or two, maybe a pear, and an extra appletree for good measure.

February mornings. The air is fresh and cool, the sun steadily gaining strength and providing much needed warmth. Perfect.

Though I always dread appleseason (because that means summer is definitely over), without fail I get a bit sad at the sight of the once fruitladen tree all barren and empty. So I’m going to savour these last few of our apples. What do you think is the apple recipe to end the season with a proper bang?

The wineberry patch is starting to look pretty good. These fantastically weird rubus berries (raspberry, blackberry etc) are hidden inside the sort of lantern like covering until they start to ripen. They taste like slightly sharp and tropical raspberries, a little like a physalis (cape gooseberry). If enough survive the kids I might try and test their namesake and brew them into wine 🍷

We had a disappointing crop last year, lost a lot of plums to summer storms and pesky birds & bugs. Here’s to hoping this year will be better.

My mother in law used to play underneath the apple trees in her grandparents’ orchard when she was just a small girl. She remembered there being loads of lily of the valley, growing abundantly, sheltered by the trees. The orchard is long gone, but she still has some lilies. And now a few of them are growing underneath our apple trees.
