Fruit Setting?

Well we couldn't expect the fantastic weekend weather to last and it hasn't. It's turned much cooler and cloudier over the last couple of days and it's been windy at times.

Tuesday was a day to be working in the greenhouse rather than outside. Each day there's an inspection of our apricot, peach and nectarine trees in the greenhouse to see if any of those flowers of a few weeks ago have set any fruit. At the moment things look promising but it's early days.
Apricot - Flavourcot
Peach - Avalon Pride
Nectarine - Fantasia
It looks as though all three trees have set some fruit so we are hopeful that we'll at least get something from each tree.

The early salad leaves and club root resistant brassicas sown at the beginning of the month have germinated well and they'll need pricking out into modules in a few days time.

Of course now there's some new spring greenery in the greenhouse the pests are starting to move in.
Mint sauce with added protein anybody.
