This year the only fruit I will be harvesting is some strawberrys & a couple of apples (literally 1 or 2).  

But I have grand plans for next year.  All the ground work has been done (apart from the planting of the wineberry which I'm still awaiting delivery of).


But next year I will have fruit for 10 out of 12 months......


Feb - Rhubarb

March - Rhubarb 

April - Rhubarb & Alpine Strawberries (throughout the year)

May -…
