It’s a start…

With thanks once again to my overworked and underpaid hand-model, meet the sum total of our 2011/12 fruit harvest.

Yes, that’s right. A single fig! We did think there might be an apple or two earlier, but the earlier grass-grub infestation ended that quite quickly.

But at least all the trees have had a good growing season to get strong without the burden of producing any fruit, so hopefully next year they’ll be all the stronger and ready to go. And we’ll know that when Pinot starts chasing brown beetles at night it’s time to spray the trees again.
