That has to be a first!

We've just picked 40kg of Tydeman's Early Worcester in an old orchard in the village. On 16th August! Surely that is a first?

Looking around the orchards and trees in gardens there is clear evidence that the trees are under stress due to a combination of high temperatures and lack of water. They will survive but the fruit this year is going to be noticeably smaller.

So too early for Apple Day, but still a lovely taste so we will be juicing them tomorrow.
