Planting apple trees.
We were recently donated three apple trees by Joan Fisher, and would like to thank Joan for her very generous gift to the farm. Last Thursday we planted them in the grassy area of the farmyard, against the south-facing wall of the old pig sheds. There is a Bramley, a Katy (my favourite apple when I was a kid), and an Anniversary. Digging the holes was hard work, requiring a pneumatic drill to break through lumps of granite in places, but we filled the holes with good topsoil from another recent excavation, and hope the trees will do well in their new home.
