Never had much luck keeping them, but usually because they get eaten! Hopefully will get a better crop this year if the frosts haven't killed the blossom.

finished bagging and freezing the apple juice, 32 ltr in all , chickens going mad for the pulp I have frozen some as goat treats later on. Juice is sweetish with just a hint of tartness, best served chilled !

Moving 3 tonnes of cement and concrete blocks... by hand! Time to fix the old David Brown!

Today I caught several rats in a humane trap. But what to do with them?

Then I had a brainwave. You know those folks from the city who keep releasing town foxes in the countryside because they belong here?..........  ;)

Listening to Allotment association politics and thinking that watching the grass grow is an interesting hobby.
If you cant beat 'em then at least bugger 'em about a bit.

Making coffee for my gardener and the builder who is laying our new patio. Unfortunately I made the mistake of introducing them both to mocha so that's what I have to make now. Extra work!

Putting down a full pallet of mud control slabs so now I have all regularly used gateways and some tracks between done for next winter.  The ones I put down in the liquid gloop last winter got taken up and laid properly last month.

Expensive but really worth it and unlike concrete I can pick them up and relocate them if ever I move.

(and yesterday) ... moving tractor implements and a trailer around my stores area together with a lot of flailing & strimming, assisted by a friend, and some earth moving in order to create a semi-permanent parking position for my wee caravan.  By around midday today, we were ready for the caravan move which has been residing in a neighbour's field for couple of weeks (suggested by him so that he could get his mower onto my Field 2 and because his field more secure than mine).  Well: he had had to move the 'van, which was OK (I'd left key to the tow-ball lock in case), but after much scratching of heads at the noise it was making, while being towed back to my Fields, investigation showed that rear end of the rod controlling 'van brakes was bent and dragging on the ground ! 

I've yet to inquire as to who actually reversed the 'van into some low-level rigid obstruction,
but that's obviously what's happened and I need, really, to establish whether was neighbour's fault or sellers fault (with, in latter case, the consequence not appearing until now).  It's gonna have to be done, but it's gonna be awkward.

Sometimes it better not to accept a favour for a favour!!!
