An apple adventure today – Caroline and I went to help press cider apples at Paul Hurd’s small-holding – right on the edge of the Forest of Dean. No mistletoe in Paul’s orchard – which was slightly disappointing, and also a challenge – we must get some established there from next year. Plenty just down the hill on the edge of the estuary – so maybe it’s partly an altitude thing.
Anyway – apples already picked – and 5 bodies to help – and all the right equipement:
