Here are some highlights:
This is the first year that the trees have been old enough to leave some of the fruit on the trees, and after a good session of weeding round the trees it was apple picking time for the Junior Rangers !
First we had the Junior Rangers out in the orchard, weeding round the trees, raking up grass
Then the picking commenced
|The fun way to pick apples !|
and the apple tasting!
|Which variety tastes best!!?|
Plenty of apples to go round!
|Apple smoothie! Yum!!|
Our adult volunteers have also been hard at work replacing and reinforcing the tree guards.
This winter we'll be holding a pruning workshop in the orchard...details coming soon
