The apricots are ready.
We traipsed over to our "allotment" (Pendlebury Hill) yesterday to work on the rose garden and we were pleasantly surprised to see little orange dots all over the apricot tree.
Below is the tree last year - overgrown with grass and weeds.
Lots of newspaper and lots of pea straw and this year we have around 15 kg of fruit!
Apricot grading has commenced,
to be followed by jam making, cake-baking and preserves.
