I HOPE THAT YOU FIND THE BOOK.


READING ON THE INTERNET CAN BE A GOOD SOURCE OF INFORMATION BUT IT CAN ALSO BE LIKE CHINESE WHISPERS, ONE ERROR BEING ADDED TO ANOTHER,


HARRY BAKER IS LIKE THE OLD BLOKE YOU MEET AT THE ALLOTMENT. FULL OF KNOWLEDGE BUT NOBODY YOUNG HAS THE PATIENCE TO LISTEN TO HIM.

Is this a quince tree?

HELLO LB.


I THINK YOU WERE JUST WEARING YOUR CLOAK OF INVISIBILITY TO LULL US INTO A FALSE SENSE OF SECURITY.


I HAVE JUST BOOKED  TICKETS FOR A PLAY THAT IS GOING TO BE ON AT THE QUAYS THEATRE IN SALFORD AND THEN DO A TOUR. IT'S CALLED MR. DARCY LOSES THE PLOT.


 CAN'T WAIT TO SEE IT. HERE IS A TASTE.

GOOD TO KNOW THAT RUBEE'S BITS WERE BENIGN. I HAVE HAD A FEW REMOVED OVER THE YEARS, JUST TO BE ON THE SAFE SIDE.

MORNING ALL.


MORNING LB.


I MUST HAVE WOKEN UP TEN TIMES DURING THE NIGHT. GRRR.


IT'S RAINING, AGAIN.


TODAY HAS TO BE A CLEANING OF BIRD TABLES AND BIRD FEEDERS DAY. TWO DAYS AGO I FOUND A YOUNG WREN LYING DEAD ON THE TERRACE. NOT A MARK ON IT. YESTERDAY A FEMALE BLACKBIRD SPENT THE WHOLE DAY JUST SITTING, EYES HALF CLOSED, IN MORE OR LESS THE SAME PLACE. SHE WOULDN'T MOVE WHEN YOU WALKED PAST, SHE WOULDN'T EAT A CHERRY - I HAVE NEVER SEEN A BLACKBIRD REFUSE A CHERRY - AND THEN AT ABOUT SEVEN O'CLOCK ONE OF THE CATS JUST WALKED UP TO HER AND PUT HER OUT OF HER MISERY IN A SECOND. POOR THING.


I HAVE GOOGLED BIRD FLU BUT I DON'T THINK IT'S THAT. NO SIGN OF REGURGITATED FOOD LIKE TRICHOMONIASIS, MAYBE IT'S SALMONELLA. ANYWAY, EVERYTHING IS GETTING A GOOD WASH TODAY, RAIN OR NO.

THE PREVIOUS GARDENER PERHAPS BOUGHT FRUIT TREES WHICH ARE GRAFTED ONTO DWARFING ROOTSTOCKS. THESE TAKE UP LESS SPACE. BUT EVEN TREES GRAFTED ONTO DWARFING ROOTSTOCKS NEED PRUNING.


HOWEVER, THE WORST THING YOU CAN DO IS HARD PRUNE THE PLANTS IN ONE FELL SWOOP. THE MORE YOU CUT OFF, THE FASTER THE TREES WILL TRY TO MAKE UP THE DIFFERENCE. SO, TRY TO APPROACH THE GOAL OF THE PRUNING REGIME AS A JOB THAT WILL TAKE SEVERAL YEARS TO ACHIEVE.


BUY YOURSELVES A REALLY GOOD BOOK ABOUT FRUIT PRUNING, SUCH AS THE VERY CLEAR AND EASILY UNDERSTOOD "GROWING FRUIT" BY HARRY BAKER. I SAY THIS BECAUSE APPLES AND PEARS ARE PRUNED AT DIFFERENT TIMES FROM PLUMS AND APRICOTS AND IN DIFFERENT WAYS. FAR TOO COMPLICATED TO EXPLAIN HERE.


ALSO, OF COURSE, THERE IS ONE WAY THAT YOU CAN CLEAR SPACE AND THAT IS TO REMOVE FRUIT THAT YOU ARE UNLIKELY TO EAT. IF YOU DON'T LIKE GOOSEBERRIES, FOR EXAMPLE, THERE ISN'T MUCH POINT IN GROWING THEM.


I HAVE SIX GOOSEBERRY BUSHES, TWO PEAR TREES, SEVENTEEN APPLE TREES, TWO PLUMS, A DAMSON, A QUINCE, A MULBERRY, A PEACH AND TWO CHERRIES.


I LIKE FRUIT.
