The vegetable garden is now into its second year and the fruit trees are doing well. Below is a couple of the large Montys Surprise apples that are hanging off our two year old tree. They are enormous and will not be ripe until March by which time they will be like saucers.
This is the tree weighed down by the fruit. Montys Surprise are known to have the highest level of cancer fighting properties in the skin and is of course a heritage variety.

My tomatoes are a mix of heritage such as Pink Brandywine that I grew from seeds saved three years ago, plums and hybrids.
I left last years leeks in the ground to supply plenty of food for the bees, but found that the bumbles also love the allium heads.
