This is such an inspiring time of year, especially when there is such an abundance of fruit. I have never seen so many apples on our trees before. Weather conditions must have been ideal, although there are very few rose hips so far. Three of our apple trees were grown from the pips of eating apples, planted by the children about fifteen years ago. Two of them are like crab apples but the one pictured above is absolutely delicious, they are about 5cm in diameter and quite sweet.
The blackberries, damsons and sloes are also doing really well. Hopefully I shall have time to make some jam this year.
