Photo article from the Welsh Hovel - the Dogs Arse fruit tree is planted

In the background you can see Paul, my er… colleague in gardening enterprises here at the Welsh Hovel heading off with the Lady of the Manor to inspect the herb garden. In the foreground is the latest addition to the new orchard, the Nottingham Merdlar, a tree that produces “dog’s arse fruit” as I noted here.

One day, these trees in the new orchard will all, apart from the gigs, be a couple of yards or more high and, I hope, laden with leaves and fruit. For now, my three lines of apples, crab apples, pears and plums planted last year look a bit bare but all continue to grow higher and most now have shoots of life on them.
