Harvest 2017

 Not sure how big Tender and True get but this is one of this years crop of Gladiator. I've grown them for a few years now and they never let me down.

First snow of the winter, albeit very brief. Chilling wind on the Downs this morning.

Just ordered 3 Blueberries - need to re-pot?

Hi Pete, when you get your plants from Trehane they will come with a full set of care instructions. I bought 3 plants from them in September, their advice was to keep them in the original pots until the spring. The idea being that they will just ' sulk' if potted on in the ' dormancy' period.

Instead of digging down, why not use raised beds? Much easier than removing tonnes of stone and would give you plenty of soil depth.

 Floss looking rather 'smug' after finding a muddy hole. She wasn't quite so keen on being hosed down later .

Lovely pics Steephill 👍. On our last visit there they were well spread out on the golf course, a different hazard to a bunker for the members!

Bright and crisp day, lovely in the sunshine. Temperature dropping rapidly now, proper 'Brass Monkey' out there now.
