East facing wall fruit

Posted: 30/01/2016 at 17:30

I've got a Concorde (our favourite) espaliered pear forming a sort of 'fence' on the side of our eating area on the terrace - it runs north/south and has the studio forming the opposite wall of the eating area, so I suppose the pear could be said to be 'east facing'  . 

I planted it as a one year maiden, and it has three layers of growth so I suppose it's four years old now.  It had some blossom last year but is too young to bear fruit yet so I can't tell you how successful it will be, but it's looking good so far.

Good luck

My lovely daughter-in-law comes from Barbados where the temperature outside is always 28 degrees or there abouts so I asked her how people greet each other. Apparently instead of weather comments, so usual in the UK the question is "what are you having for your dinner tonight?"!! 

Think that's our second question

Pdoc - that's great!

None around today other than a disconsolate woodpigeon and a solitary bluetit - think they're all down on the marshes and in the oakwoods ... just as well I'm not counting until tomorrow

KEF - I read the number plate as DAD'S WRECK - or is it just me?  The spacings had certainly been adjusted to make two words.

A while back I saw a car on the Newmarket Road with the plate CUM 8YE ... it could only have belonged to someone who had working sheepdogs or who took part in sheepdog trialling.
