Is anyone else totally fed up with Gardeners' World presenters taking something out of a pot and showing the viewers how to put it in the ground every Friday without fail??? I don't know anyone else who even bothers to watch and only do so myself because it's so laughable. Do Toby and Alice think they're back at kindergarten? Why don't they call it Gardening for Dummy's and be done with?
Most of the trees are now bare and only the Acers and Silver Birches are hanging on to their fading colours. The chickens are thoroughly enjoying all the extra leaf litter to scratch around in and the wood ash in which to dust bathe. The evenings are ever shorter and cosier at PTC and the scent of roasting chestnuts is wafting upwards so, no guesses as to what Al's up to!
Meanwhile this is what's happening in the orchards that surround PTC. The cider apple harvest is in full swing.
However, right now; I'd better check out these chestnuts..............
