Apples are growing…

7

Saturday 20 June, 2015 by Uncle Spike

Growing apples here is bit ‘hit-n-miss’ we’ve found, mainly due to the incessant heat of our normally prolonged hot and dry five-plus month long summers. Whilst citrus fruit love it when the sun raises the thermometer above 45c (113F), hard fruit like apples tend to just give-up altogether.

But of course, this year is a whole new ballgame for us. The weather is upside-down, still, with storms into mid June, rather than the end of April! It’s been great in a way; with daytime temps often still hovering around 28-35C – positively balmy one could say – and of could the apples are lovin’ it, as you can see!
