Bare rooted trees need to be planted before they start into growth so the time of year to plant them is running out.
This morning I found myself (against my better judgement) planting an apple tree in a down pour of rain.
As it was cold and wet I did not linger long at the allotment by the time I left my hands were so cold i could hardly lock the padlock on the gate.
The soil is so wet at the allotment that there s no way I can work on it until it has had two or three dry days to make the soil less likely to compact when I walk on it. I need to get paths and raised beds in if this weather pattern continues in future years.
Will update soon, I have shallots waiting to be planted but the soil is too wet to do that.

Growing Your Own Fruit and Vegetables
We grow our own fruit and vegetables for our meals for as much of the year as we can. Without a greenhouse we have to buy shop food in the winter months but in the spring, summer and autumn we often have enough to share with family and friends.
