Help! Crows feasting on my apples

Hia Happy ,,if you take waterbutts advise then you must mind your teeth when you later pick the apples, thats if theres any left to pick, and crow pie iv heard is very nice,now thats what i call getting your own back, i noticed new discovery apples appeared in the local vegy today mortgage prices again just to catch all the holiday makers here in Tenby AND they pay it, so i can understand you being annoyed good luck with the crows

2 things i forgot ,as Stacy says a good load of manure left on top the worms will do the rest and if poss have some left over just rotting away for later thats what we did,nt do but will on the next allotment, also go round the allotment and see who has the best one , he or she is the one to get to know ,gardeners love to be told there garden/allotment is looking good and love giving advice when asked , starting is so exciting and were moving very soon and already have an allotment waiting and like you starting again,oh and also you might want to know if anything has been planted last or this year because of crop rotation were going to have to do it again like you,,cant wait,
