Unusually for this time of year, today was an incredibly windy day - still blowing a gale as I type this. The allotment is quite open, although we have planted hedge bushes at the top end to try and break things up a bit. However, everything blows all over the allotment!
I have tied up a couple of the minarette fruit trees so hopefully they will withstand the wind - especially as the apples and the damson are laden with fruit.
One of the pear trees has a strange disease - black spots on the leave and the fruit doesn't look too happy. No idea what it is - any ideas anyone?
