    Not one today: see you next year!
    Cancel the kitchen scraps for lepers and orphans, no more merciful beheadings, and call off Christmas.

    Not one for me, bought three fruit trees for the garden (very small ones!). Wishing everyone a happy new year for tonight and 2024 xx :)
    Oooh, what types ….? 😊

    KK
    A Stella cherry (for out the front, where there is some space), and an Isaac Newton apple and Beurre Hardy pear (both cordons, so very small) for out the back. I have had an allotment for years but this year I realised I probably could squirrel quite a lot of fruit & veg into the garden at home despite the limited size and I decided to do that instead to save time and work. I have also transplanted some of the rhubarb crowns and gooseberry bushes, so lots of nice things still to grow I hope :smiley:
    Oh lovely ☺️ 
    Growing up is meant to increase the volume of produce you can get from a space 😊

    Yes I hope so! I'm thinking of putting in some "vertical gardens" too (where you grow tiered rows of plants like a bookcase? I've forgotten what they're called :lol: ). Gardening is good! :smiley: x :)
