What with the half term school holidays and the days getting shorter, I haven’t been doing a lot in the garden this week. Or more accurately, anything. That is not to say there has been no activity.
I’m so pleased the onion sets I planted a couple of weeks or so ago have started to grow leaves. On the other hand, I wasn’t so ecstatic this morning to see a hole in the ground with the more recently planted onion sets. Maybe they don’t need to be covered just yet, so I can keep an eye on this area better.
Having got a year’s entry to Helmsley Walled Garden, following our visit earlier in the month, I was keen to have another look before the garden closed for the winter. And I was glad we went because in the municipal car park there was a tree shedding its apples with no one seemingly taking any interest in the fallen fruit.
I guess the apples are eaters and if so that half bag of them will keep me going in my lunch box. As for the more bruised, I’ll have to get my thinking cap on.
I’d also be interested to know what there ‘fruit’ are on a pine tree in the Walled Garden are.
