Here are some pics taken yesterday.
|Lorna tying in the grape vine|
We have a percola with a bench underneath which has two grape vines and two thornless blackberry plants climbing up it. Lorna isn't a giant, she is standing on the bench!
|Pete building a very long raised bed.|
We share a fairly ugly fence line with a bakery, and in the winter we planted some raspberry canes along part of it. This is the next phase - we will plant more fruit, training it along the fence to hide the metalwork.The raised bed is made from recycled scaffold planks.
The next two photos are of the fruit arch - which is coming along nicely (needs some prunign and tying in too) and the long fenceline which has cordon apple, pear and plum along its length.

We are always keen to have more people helping on the orchard, and I can't think of a nicer way to spend a mid summer evening! We're there from 6.30-8 pm on Mondays.
