Well, it looks like autumn is unfolding. A change in the atmosphere, somehow like winter but warm (maybe because last winter it was warm).
I can’t quite pull the plug on the cucumbers but have been putting bigger cloche on the kale (to keep the caterpillars away). Neither of these are yellow, unlike the pumpkins, which I’m delighted to say now number four.
Perhaps one day my tree will look more like the one I pruned in the Orchard at Old Sleningford Farm yesterday. Not as wide, in view of the lack of breadth in the back garden, but equally laiden would be great!
