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

................the potatoes are chitting away happily in the tool shed window!   This year, I have strayed from Arran Pilots and gone for this new variety.  This straying from a lifelong tradition is due solely to Steve's influence.  If I had more more room, I'd grow more varieties.  I hope these taste as good as Steve's did last year!
