Pick of the Crop

This picture records our bountiful harvest of cider apples this year. This represents around half of the total crop, we've been gathering and pressing the fallen apples for a few weeks now. The striped green/red apples at the bottom are Dabinett, the more pinky/orange ones at the top are Harry Masters' Jersey. The handful of Yarlington Mill and Tremlett's Bitter apples have already been juiced.

Not a huge crop on the face of it, but considering our total harvest last year amounted to four apples, we're very pleased with the way our young orchard is developing.
