Last year I really tried to sample as many different varieties of English Apples but managed to forget all the names and what they looked and tasted like. This year it will not happen again! I have added a page where I’m going to take a snap of the apples and maybe write a bit about them. It started on the 8th August when my local greengrocers had it’s first Apple which hadn’t been airfreighted thousands of miles from the USA, Chile or NZ. I don’t think we should have a problem with French apples but why not buy something that has been grown very close to home. Its your consumer pound that counts in these cases. Theres a set on flickr too!
I’m not even going to say anything about the so called “terror plot”. Just go and read 1984 and have a think about it.
There will be more updates on the allotment blog soon. Everything is getting ready to eat and my 13 tomato plants at home are starting to get big fruit – nothing has gone red yet. Also, eating freshly picked blackberries and then eating them on your weetabix/museli is one of the most satisfying things ever! This gardening lark is quite good fun…!
