Back from a weekend away mid afternoon with a strong gale forecast tonight so went around in a hurry all apples picking any that came easy. Got quite a lot including over 100 Snell's Glass. A few from most trees that have fruit.

Strawberries seemed to have survived the weekend without attention and settled in. All showing at least one small fresh leaf or have turned existing leaves right way up.

Plan to use the area that was the failed sweetcorn crop this year as a nursery for trees (acorns) and currant cuttings.

Euan has offered more seedlings, and there are some more ash growing under the oaks by the stream which I will move.
