Sorry hank - I was boating! Sounds good in Canada

Our summer didn't materialise after the initially promising spring. My crop consists of a lot of small apples - but better than last year (I think I'll be pressing this time). The Jays attacked my dessert apples and I netted the trees today, but the cider fruit remains unmolested. I need an Indian Summer now to make it work - fingers crossed. I'm on the last 30 bottles of the 2014 vintage, so I'm really focused...

mmmmmmmm - cracklin'!

First picking of apples tomorrow AM. Not a great show, but there WILL be cider this year

I have fond memories of dining on Alan's game terrine and a bottle of wine whilst marooned by weather on a Scottish island.

Autumn has overrun me. The first pick of dessert fruit was miserable (because of my negligence) but the late cider crop looks OKish. The pears look good - smaller numbers but bigger fruit. I expect it to be a very average year overall. I spotted some unusual fungi in my "lawn" recently - at first glance I would have said "Chantrelles/Girolles" but they were nasty trash mushrooms.

Beware!
