The gardens of Pear Tree Cottage sit in a cider apple orchard in the green and rolling countryside of Worcestershire, England. It enjoys a sunny south westerly aspect with sweeping views across to Martley Hillside, Woodbury & Abberley clock tower. The Teme Valley lies just over the hill and, not far away, is the Herefordshire border. Although our climate is temperate - PHZ 8, our seasons are often uncertain and always a challenge to a gardener!
It all began in 2010 & follows the weekly ups and downs of garden work chronicling both successes and failures but most of all demonstrates the fun enjoyed by three people who regularly garden in all weathers.

Question: How many bottles of apple juice were made from our 2 wheelbarrows full of apples?
How amazing is that? In case you're at all doubtful, here's (part of) the proof:
All bottled sealed and pasteurised and can be kept for 2 years - not much chance of that! It's absolutely delicious. Many thanks to Colin and Val who collected them for us and lugged them all into the garage (and then forgot to take any samples home to Essex!)
