As with most of Europe, just about all our fruit trees are now in flower, and as usual I am becoming nervous.
We still have about 6 weeks to go before the risk of frost is over.
At present we have the anticipation of another bumper harvest, but as has been demonstrated in the past, it can all come to nothing.
Certain fruits ALWAYS come-up trumps. I don't think I've ever known a year without Figs and certain semi-wild Plums, but it's the apples that are the most important, to see us through winter.
So, we cross our fingers, bite our nails, and simply hope for the best.
I'll let you know!
