We've had a very good crop of apples on the trees that set fruit. Several of our trees have had no fruit at all as the early frost and wind got to them. I'll be pollinating our apricot by hand next year as it usually flowers before the bees wake up.

Our grass has been growing in fits and starts this summer as it gets rain and when the temperature pops up a bit. It's growing at the moment but I've got a couple of round bales of hay in the trailer ready to feed to them.

We have 3 plum trees and they went mad, as did the tiny apple tree on the Plot. It's less than 5 y.o. and it's produced, at a very rough guess, about 30 kg of apples! Pear trees are nuts, but the 2 apple trees in the garden made a total of 4 (four) apples. I think they're resting after last year.

All the berries were so early that I missed the buggers through negligence.
