Glamis Castle Walled Garden Apples


By Scotkat


Yesterday was a perfect day at Glamis the weather was idilicic

Karen was very busy weeding the herbaceous border while I went and started weeding around the Victoria Plum then down the whole walled wall of Apple Trees.

I got so far to the 1st Gate then thought best to stop and move over to help Karen plant some plants as it was gettign so hot beside the Apples.

We had a lot of nice visitors with good comments and visitors are now coming back to see our progress.

One couple tole me yesterday that last year there was an abundance of apples on the trees but a lot also on the ground.

But 2013 Karen and I wont allow apples to lie on ground as we shall pick them up for sale.

This is the view we see from the window of the Potting shed and to think last week there was no green on the trees.

Could not forget our Karen and Molly:)

Hi Kath, it always annoys me when I see fruit or veg just left on the ground to rot, when it could so easily be used,
I don't mind a few tomatoes on the ground in a greenhouse, as they help to ripen the others.
I sometimes visit the local allotments, when they have an open day, and there is always a load of produce lying on the ground, what would be wrong with selling them cheap to visitors cheap, or even free, Derek.
