Fruit trees

In the old days, people used to shoot the tree with a rifle. The theory was that you shot it on the side that was not producing and this 'shocked' it back to life.

Splendid morning here, garden starting to fill with colour and veg looking a little happier, now that the sun is shining

SO!, took slices of Clementine cake to Compost Master Stall that I and 2 colleagues were running at Lions Club Event in The Walks in King's Lynn today. Spent 5 very enjoyable hours talking to people about making their own compost, a few people knew a lot already, some were really keen but had fears about smells from compost (there are none), the children loved the wormery and especially looking at the worms through a magnifier, all in all a very productive day.

Sorry Verdun, no cake left
