Its Spring Again !!!
I thought I was seeing things today when i came out the cabin after checking no I wasn't they were there
The apple tree outside the cabin is coming into blossom again, I can only think because of the recent cold weather the tree thinks its now spring time
I checked the one at the top of the garden no blossom but plenty of fruit, I have no idea what kind of apples they are.
I keep meaning to show you the Piquant Pepper seeds that came from Dani in Africa that I was lucky enough to get in a give away, they were planted out in the tunnel after a very slow start they have come on great and are now starting to form flower buds, you never know we may get a few off them this year yet.
Something else I haven't shown you in the poly tunnel that is doing really well is the Melons
They are at the stage were I need to to give them some support as the fruits are swelling daily and if I don't act soon the weight of the fruit will drag the plant down, in total I have counted 12 lovely melons coming on the three plants. They were an Italian melon I must look the name up.I am still hoping the watermelons come on a bit quicker they have small fruits at the moment if they don't get a move on they will be too late. I shall be cutting back the melon plants now so they divert there energy into the fruits.
Right its off into the forest for a walk with Sol before I have dinner :-)
