we have a beautiful red and yellow plum next to the A2, the problem, its on a dual carriageway on a steep hill, and there are no hard shoulders, just crash barriers, nearest possible place to stop is the layby 1 mile before or a short pull in near the top of the hill 1 mile further on.

we do the impossible daily, miracles take a little longer.

Its depressing when you have to then see them going to waste. The apple we know looks like a picture, i am sure close up the apples probably have the same issues that most other trees but they look amazing from the road.  :( and very very large

The fruit that can't be reached provides food for birds so it won't go to waste.    We have a local group that organises fruit picking and they have persuaded the council to plant fruit by bus and railway stations etc etc and in their new tree planting schemes along with the usual English native trees

When I walk the dog I never go without my carrier bag and punnets  ;)

So i have been pulling out these tiny blackcurrant seedlings from under the bushes. And hubby asks me why i am bothering to pot them on.  ???

My answer is because "they are freebies"  :wacko: so he replied " yes but we already have more than enough"

"But they are free" i kept repeating, So i need some brilliant reason why i am growing them on rather than because they are free. seems criminal to throw them on the compost pile.  :unsure:
send them my way I love black currants, we have loads of blackberries coming into flower nesr me cant wait to pick them, and there is a couple of elder flower trees to but they are to high up to reach  :ohmy: love free stuff.
some people are like slinkys......they're really good for nothing, but they still bring a smile to your face as you push them down the stairs!!
