Apple picking season is nearly upon us and this years harvest looks to be a bumper crop.
Over the past few days I’ve visited a few Orchards looked after by the National Trust to check out the harvest. I’ve been to Calke Abbey, Coughton Court and Stoneywell Cottage.
So many old varieties of Apples in various shapes, sizes and colours. Due to an allergy it’s a shame I can only eat them cooked but hey Apple Pie it is
This is the first in a series of “Apple Blogs” hope you enjoy seeing a few of the varieties at Calke Abbey
An Apple a day keeps the Doctor away
With this this many Apples waiting to harvest there should keep the Doctor away for quite sometime!!
