As the winter days draw on sadly the last of the apples have been gathered from the orchard this year.
Unfortunately, some of the trees were affected by water logging and didn’t produce any apples. The ones at the top of the orchard were great. On Monday City Harvest turned up and took 150kg and today we pulled in about 100kg to use for the mulled apple juice at the restaurant Xmas events.
All the rest of the apples which is approximately 1500kg, we left on the ground for the abundant wildlife and to feed the trees.
