Good morning, everyone. It seems a very long time since I wrote my blog but it's only been two days missed. It's nice to be back.
It looks rather gloomy outside at the moment although Beeb says it could be quite a nice day later on. I'm hoping for a good downpour at some point soon, a really good one as the ground is so very dry. I'm glad Jeff was over yesterday morning and watered the pots for me.
While on the subject of gardens, the new ballerina apple tree is sporting just two heads of blossom (one shouldn't expect anything first year so anything is a bonus) and they will be opening soon - possibly next week. I believe the redlove is at the same stage so I will bring some redlove blossom home to see if I can do a manual pollination. The chances of just two blossom heads being pollinated naturally with no other tree in the garden is fairly minimal!
(and I must remember to get another codling moth protection thingy)
All the new plants are surviving - the little tree, the bamboos and the leftover raspberry cane - so that's encouraging. As for the baby plants . . .
Must start thinking about the runner beans and the mange tout as well!
