The heavy old mower my friend Rob kindly gave to me is becoming temperamental. Today, after 3 wet weeks, the abundant grass paths nearly finished us both off. But the cucumbers have enjoyed the weather and I even managed to harvest the first of the little yellow variety ‘lemon apple’.
The quince tree is completely laden. Amazing to think it’s been there such a short time and last year provided a crop of just 4 precious fruit. I’m looking forward to the fragrant harvest and making membrillo and quince gin (thanks to Beulah for the recipe!). And the apple tree, despite its less than ideal situation, also looks pretty good. Hope the sun continues.
