Sunny Apple Day - 2012

Today was Apple Day at the allotment site and Orchard 49.  Juice was pressed, apples and potatoes baked in our cob oven and we had samples of apples grown on the orchard for people to taste.  We basked in autumnal sunshine and warm - delightful.

Work for the day, when not talking to visitors, was some hoeing - using a beautiful osillating hoe (Hydra Swing Hoe) from Implementations - who gifted the tool to the Orchard last year. We also painted the trees with fruit tree grease to prevent codling moth next year and picked some apples - lovely they were too.
